For more than 25 years Charles “Charlie” Rutherford has brought joy to Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth.
Charlie, son of U.S. Congressman and Texas State Representative and Senator J.T. Rutherford, was born with Intellectual Developmental Disability (IDD) and currently lives in Denton. Charlie has been an active member of the community, taking part in Special Olympics events for many years. He even has a state championship in bowling!
Charlie’s coworkers describe him as someone who is always smiling and performs his daily tasks with enthusiasm. This same passion he has for his work extends to his relationships with his family and coworkers as well. Charlie never forgets a face and is quick to make friends with the people that he meets. In 2019, Charlie was recognized for his 25 years of service at Goodwill during the organization’s annual Board/Staff Luncheon. Individuals like Charlie are what make Goodwill, great!
