Construction to commence on larger and more centralized headquarters in Salinas, CA
SALINAS, CA – Goodwill Central Coast is celebrating the start of construction on their new Salinas Headquarters with a ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, December 15 at 9:00 a.m. Attendees are invited to conduct interviews and enjoy refreshments provided by the Goodwill Culinary Academy.
Relocating from Santa Cruz to Salinas, the new headquarters will be a safer, larger and more efficient space designed to be barrier free for all current and future employees. Plans for the Salinas property include newly remodeled administrative offices, a salvage center, a donation center and an outlet store. At 98,000 square feet, the new facility will be more than double the size of the existing headquarters.
This relocation will provide opportunity to increase Goodwill Central Coast’s employee base in a more centralized location. All employees who work at the current headquarters have been offered jobs in Salinas or at other sites in Santa Cruz County.
“This move will not only benefit our employees but will, logistically, give us a better position to serve the three counties of the Central Coast,” Goodwill Central Coast CEO Ed Durkee said. “We will be creating more positions within our organization, improving our employee’s work environment and getting closer to our vision of thriving communities that are powered by economic opportunity and growth.”
The new headquarters will be located at 1566 Moffett Street in Salinas CA, and is scheduled to be completed in summer 2017. For more information on Goodwill Central Coast, visit ccgoodwill.org.
