                          Message from CEO:
                          Volunteerism Valued at Goodwill Industries of CNC, Inc.
                          In an effort to increase accessibility to our programs and campuses, Goodwill
                          Industries of Central North Carolina, Inc. has taken on an aggressive expansion
                          plan to accommodate larger and broader audiences assisting others transitioning
                          into the competitive labor market.

                          As a result of these efforts, opportunities to volunteer in support of these
                          programs have grown significantly. Volunteers providing support to our staff play
                          a valuable role in furthering the skill sets of our consumers. The feedback one
   Richard J. Gorham,     gets from interacting with others is both gratifying and immediate.
                       Community based organizations such as ours rely on experienced and enthusiastic
individuals who can provide a positive impact and experience to those accessing our services.

To those who put forth these efforts, we are extremely grateful for your kind acts. It is our hope and
aspiration that we can grow our volunteer base by creating win/win scenarios for all involved. Those who
choose to make a difference in the lives of others provide benefits to others from their expertise.

                          Board Spotlight:
                          Gary Rogers, D.H. Griffin Construction Co., LLC
                          Meet one of Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina’s newest board
                          members, Gary Rogers, Vice President - Central Carolina with D.H. Griffin
                          Construction Co., LLC. Read what Gary Rogers had to say...

                          Why did you decide to serve on Goodwill’s Board? I identified with and
                          learned the purpose and mission of Goodwill in improving our community.
                          I knew Dan Hood and he was extremely positive about the Goodwill activities.

      Gary Rogers         What is one goal you would like to accomplish during your term as
      D.H. Griffin        a Goodwill Board Member? To have an active role in some part of the
  Construction Co., LLC   organization, from a board standpoint, and to “make a difference” for the
                          betterment of Goodwill.

In what capacity did you interact with Goodwill prior to joining the Board? Shopping?
Donating? I make donations every year and would periodically shop the stores.

How will your professional experience help you as a leader for Goodwill? My real estate,
construction and retail experience can serve as an asset to Goodwill.

If you had the chance to go on a road trip outside of North Carolina, what three states would
you visit and why?

1. Illinois - I was born there and still have a lot of relatives that live there.
2. Utah - I want to see and hike the North side of the Grand Canyon.
3. California - I would love to see and experience the wine country.

If you had to eat the same meal every day for lunch, would it be and why? Pasta – anytime,
anyplace. Even though it is not the healthiest, it is my favorite.
