On Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 10 a.m. the Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting for Goodwill Industries Day Habilitation facility located at 205 SE Catawba Rd. The Day Habilitation programs are offered in Erie and Ottawa counties for people with disabilities to work in a closely supervised environment. Workers sort donations (such as baseball cards, jewelry and toys) and bag or organize to sell in the Goodwill stores. Workers also scan donated books and enter them into a computer database so the books can be sold on Amazon or Half.com.
“It’s a great work environment,” said Goodwill CEO Eric Kochendoerfer. “We are very excited for this location to open.”
