Pete Deutschman

Pete Deutschman has always been an advocate for Goodwill of Orange County but when we decided to rebrand our premiere online auction marketplace, ShopGoodwill, Pete really stepped up. COVID hit just as the rebranding process started and throughout the shut down and subsequent re-opening of the county Pete was right there shoulder to shoulder with the Goodwill of Orange County team volunteering hours to help them succeed. Pete’s passionate commitment to Goodwill is obvious through his continued support to their mission. We are grateful to have him as a partner and advocate. Thank you Pete!

Award Category: Economic & Workforce Development

Why This Volunteer is Extraordinary:

Tim Britt

Tim Britt started to get to know Goodwill of Orange County back in 2019 as they were getting ready to rebrand their flagship online auction site, ShopGoodwill. Tim and his company Synoptek were being considered as a partner in updating and modernizing the site and then the world shut down due to COVID. Tim continued to volunteer his expertise and countless hours as O.C. Goodwill slowly reopened and we got back to business. Building the relationship has been so rewarding and his love of the platform, the brand and the mission is truly appreciated and heartfelt. Thank you Tim!
