Employees of Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth will perform in a “Goodwill’s Got Talent” show this Firday, August 16 from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. Some of the show contributors will be disabled employees. By showcasing their talents in the show, these employees prove that you can’t hear a person’s abilities when you are only listening for their disabilities. The talent show will give these employees an opportunity to demonstrate that their disability does not define them. Acts will include singers, dancers, a guitarist and a pianist.
