Columbus Goodwill celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Goodwill Career Center in Columbus is hosting a series of events this week to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

On Tuesday, they hosted a Latino Entrepreneur Workshop. Those who attended learned about resources available for Latinos looking to start their own business.

Bridgette Russell with Goodwill says the number of Hispanics is growing in the area, so it's vital that they reach out to them.

"We offer bilingual job postings, skill trainings and resources like that can help this particular community get connected to jobs," Russell said.  

On Wednesday, Goodwill will hold an Immigration Workshop at 10:30 a.m.

The event is free and open to the public
