Goodwill of Orange County got a big gift from a Costa Mesa law firm to help the nonprofit expand its career and job placement services.
The $500,000 donation from Greenberg Gross is the largest single donation made so far to Goodwill OC’s career center, which was renamed Greenberg Gross Career Center.
“Greenberg Gross has been a huge champion of Goodwill’s mission for years,” said Frank Talarico, president and CEO of Goodwill OC. “The firm removes barriers to justice for its clients in the same way we remove barriers to employment for our community. We are honored to receive this mission-enhancing gift that will result in thousands of additional members of our community benefitting from the value of work.”
Wayne Gross, a Greenburg Gross partner and the former Orange County chief U.S. attorney, has served on Goodwill’s board for the past three years.
“We are passionate advocates for helping people reach their full potential and thrive,” Gross said.
