< News & Events

AMEX colleagues in the New York City and New Jersey area donated their time and resources to help gather and sort clothing for Goodwill, a non-profit, community-based organization that operates donation centers and thrift stores, and that provides job training and employment placement services across the U.S. and internationally. As a result of the event, 906 pounds of apparel were donated which amounts to 1.33 metric tons of carbon emissions reduced in our atmosphere.

“Goodwill has not only helped New Yorkers re-use and re-purpose goods for many decades but has made a difference in people’s lives through removing stigma for mental illness, job training in healthcare and employment programs,” said Katy Gaul-Stigge, President & CEO at Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey, who joined Amex colleagues for the event to share more about the Goodwill programs and environmental efforts.
