§ 39-22-3901. Legislative declaration
(1) The general assembly hereby finds and declares that Goodwill - Colorado is a public service collaborative of Goodwill Industries of Denver and Goodwill Industries of Colorado Springs and that Goodwill - Colorado:
(a) Especially in times of economic need, provides valuable opportunities for Colorado citizens to develop critical workforce skills, find employment, and advance their careers;
(b) Helps Colorado citizens with disabilities or disadvantaging work conditions to reach their highest level of personal and economic independence through job training and workforce development programs;
(c) Offers career development programs, mentoring, and internship opportunities to thousands of at-risk youth in Colorado;
(d) Makes available low-cost clothing and household items to Colorado citizens in thirty retail stores that also create new jobs and generate sales tax revenue for local communities and the state; and
(e) Annually recycles tens of millions of pounds of clothing and household items, keeping these items out of Colorado's landfills.
(2) In order to assist Goodwill - Colorado, a collaboration of Goodwill Industries of Colorado Springs and Goodwill Industries of Denver, which are both registered nonprofit organizations pursuant to section 501 (c) (3) of the internal revenue code, in fulfilling its mission, the general assembly recognizes that many citizens of Colorado may be willing to provide moneys to assist in its efforts. It is therefore the intent of the general assembly to provide Coloradans the opportunity to support the efforts of Goodwill - Colorado by allowing citizens to make a voluntary contribution on their state income tax return form to the Goodwill Industries fund for such a purpose.
