Staff from Goodwill SCWI joined in the fun at The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company celebrating the 40th birthday of Goodwill participant and Great Dane employee Chris “CJ” Johnson. With support from his Goodwill SCWI job coaches and the generous staff at The Great Dane, CJ has thrived at his job for over 20 years! Happy Birthday, CJ!
The festivities included cake and party hats, along with some of Chris’s favorite activities: karaoke (Roll Out the Barrel is a favorite), the limbo dance, and plenty of hugs.
The Great Dane also created special glasses in Chris’ honor, imprinting them with his image. Proceeds from sales of those glasses – more than $1,000 – were donated to Goodwill SCWI.
Goodwill SCWI partners with more than 100 local employers who share our belief that everyone can work!

Proceeds from the sale of gently-used donated goods funds Goodwill SCWI’s mission to provide career guidance, supported employment and residential services to people with disabilities, mental health concerns and other barriers to employment and independent living.
