HOUSTON – The pandemic has been tough for most of us, but one of the most unfortunate casualties in all this is that so many people have lost their jobs.

Wednesday, those who are searching for a job will get a chance to e-meet with employers from the area.

Goodwill Houston will hold its monthly virtual job fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and it will includes employers from Houston Independent School District, Effex Management Solutions and Goodwill Houston. Click here to register for the event.

Goodwill Houston will also host its second Virtual Health Fair on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. If you’re unemployed and have lost medical health coverage, this will be an event you won’t want to miss. Click here for more information on the health fair.

If you plan on stopping by any area Goodwill stores to donate or shop, it’s important to know that Goodwill Houston has been taking precautions to keep stores and donation centers safe amid COVID-19.

Barbie Parker, vice president of Fund Development & Community Relations with Goodwill Houston, explained their new procedures in place.

“We’ve just been so blessed by the donations, and those donations change lives through the power of work,” she said. “We’ve put into practice new safety precautions, so all of our employees are wearing face coverings, we’ve installed sneeze guards at our cash registers, our carts are being disinfected constantly, and our donated items are being quarantined (for) at least 48 hours.”
