For the second year, Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois has awarded Kishwaukee College funding for scholarships for adults with disabilities.

Goodwill awarded $2,000 in scholarship funds that are targeted to assist persons with barriers to advance their education. The scholarships enable individuals with disabilities to build a better future for themselves, their families, and the community as a whole. The scholarship funding is given to the Kishwaukee College Foundation, which oversees the award process for students.

“The Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois Scholarship for students with disabilities has a huge impact on those who receive them,” Marshall Hayes, director of development for the Kishwaukee College Foundation, said in a news release. “We really appreciate the support of Goodwill and their commitment to keeping quality education affordable and attainable for all of our students.”

Funds were raised from the Goodwill Diva Dress Sale and Fashion Show held in April. The event is held annually and raises funds for scholarships at seven community colleges in Goodwill’s service area.
