With a heavy heart, we share news of the passing of a dear friend and inspiration, Alec “Bunk” Wurth. We are honored to have known such a beautiful individual and to have been a part of his journey through the Goodwill Fitness & Technology Center and Assistive Technology Exchange Center. His contagious joy and unyielding determination will forever be remembered and serve as inspiration to all of us. This American flag painting he completed for us last year will hang in the Goodwill of Orange County offices in his honor always.


Goodwill of Orange County was proud to host its Third Annual Gala, benefitting our veterans’ services, fitness center, and assistive technology programs. Co-chairs Alaina Stamos-Talarico, Anthea Chade, and Dr. Jacqueline Dupont brought together nearly 500 attendees at the Ritz Carlton, Dana Point. John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier hosted the evening that featured a Grammy-award winning line-up of six entertainment legends. Most of all the mission and vision of the ninety-two year old organization was shared, especially in this video.

Meet Donna,
The Face of Independence.

At the age of 65, Donna had not worked in 29 years and her husband had just been laid off. She set a goal to have her own family business so she attended classes at Goodwill. After just five months of ownership, the McKenna’s Tea Cottage is thriving. Donna and her family hope to extend their hours of operation and expand the menu by including vegan and gluten-free items.
