Building Good Will At Goodwill

Goodwill of S.O./Facebook

The inventory at Goodwill Industries of Southern Oregon will soon include a very large pair of shoes. 

Those currently belong to Gayle Byrne, soon to retire as the organization's president. 

During her 37-year tenure, Byrne more than tripled the number of stores and expanded the service area and number of people helped by Southern Oregon Goodwill. 

She joins us to talk about the mission and how she worked to carry it out.
