Project for Goodwill Industries International, Inc.
Shopping is apart of everyday life, and here at Goodwill we are aware of that. Goodwill is not just a place to shop though; it is a place where people can go get help, a place of community outreach. Goodwill was founded in 1902 in Boston by Rev. Edgar J. Helms, a Methodist minister and early social innovator. Now, Goodwill Industries are North America’s leading nonprofit provider of education, training, and career services for people with disadvantages, such as welfare dependency, homelessness, and lack of education or work experience, as well as those with physical, mental and emotional disabilities. Our mission is that the clothing and household goods people donate are sold in over 2,200 Goodwill retail stores …show more content…
So whether you are donating items, working, volunteering in one of our stores, or placed in one of our programs, you are helping Goodwill Industries benefit the community. Donators help keep our stores stocked with fashions for men and women, home furnishings, and children’s toys. Without the donators there would be no items to sell. Without volunteers or employees, Goodwill stores would not be able to be open for business. Also, Goodwill will have no workers at their donation site. And last, but not least, we are especially grateful for the individuals that are placed in our programs. Without them, Goodwill would not be able to report important facts about the social impact we have on the community. Since we focus on donators, volunteers and employees, and the community, our company diagram consists of only those three categories. Only having three categories keeps our company’s diagram simple and easy to follow. Network Diagram

Please refer to our network diagram next page. The drawing shows a typical LAN for a small office-branch of goodwill. Notice that most of the office computers are connected via a hub, and that the printers, and communications services are connected via dedicated servers. This
