Jennifer Lake has been involved in the Goodwill of the Finger Lakes for more than a decade-and-a-half. As CEO, she has overseen a lot of projects that bring her pride.
Last weekend though, the grand opening of the Canandaigua Goodwill store was particularly satisfiying. For the community, partnering agencies, and those served, the new store will greatly help the organization’s mission.
Like all Goodwill stores, all purchases benefit Goodwill’s many community-based services and social enterprise programs that address critical needs within the region, including Goodwill Vision Enterprises, 211/LIFE LINE and the Good Neighbor Program.
We caught up with Lake to discuss the opening and what it means for Canandaigua and Ontario County.
