                        GOODWILL INDUSTRIES WEEK

  (Mr. CARTER of Georgia asked and was given permission to address the 
House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. CARTER of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the 
week of May 6 through May 12 as Goodwill Industries Week.
  This week is about the people of Georgia who value hard work and 
support the right of individuals to provide for themselves and their 
families. Some members in our communities require additional education, 
job preparation, skill training, and support services to reach the goal 
of self-sufficiency.
  Goodwill has a rich history of providing essential services for these 
people to be productive members of our community since 1902. Since 
1965, in southeast Georgia, Goodwill has provided community-based 
services, including career counseling, GED preparation, financial 
education, resume preparation, and more.
  In this time of low unemployment, it is more important than ever for 
us to reach out to the unemployed and give our businesses the workforce 
they need to succeed.
  Thank you to the employees of Goodwill Southeast Georgia for 
everything you are doing to keep our national economy strong, and for 
maximizing individuals' contributions to self, family, and community.
