ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. – October 5, 2021 – For five years, Goodwill of Orange County has partnered with ARCO to help more people in Orange County find meaningful employment. This year, ampm and Coca-Cola have joined the partnership to amplify the positive impact. 

Starting today, October 5, through December 7, a portion of proceeds from every purchase of two 1-liter Dasani Waters at any participating ARCO ampm convenience store in Orange County will benefit Goodwill’s mission services.

“We are so grateful to ARCO ampm and Coca-Cola for their partnership and belief in our mission,” said Nicole Suydam, President and CEO, Goodwill of Orange County. “We know that when we work together and give our community members more opportunities to join hands with us, we are able to do more good and provide more individuals with a pathway to employment, independence and pride.”

At the heart of Goodwill of Orange County’s mission is the belief that all individuals, regardless of barrier, disability or history, deserve the opportunity to work. Through more than 20 innovative Workforce Development and Disabilities Services programs, Goodwill of Orange County served more than 18,000 individuals last year.

"The ARCO brand is proud to support Goodwill for five years running,” said Victor Eseigbe, Director ARCO Marketing Operations. “Our goal is to help support the community in which we do business, and our collaboration with Goodwill does just that!"

All funds from this partnership will be used to support Goodwill of Orange County’s mission programs and serve more individuals facing barriers to employment at a time when they need it most.
