Goodwill Contributions Lower Than Normal, Asking For Public To Help

Spring is a popular time for cleaning out the garage and basement. Why not start early with your basement, closet, and attic. Then when it’s warm enough, get the garage tackled. Some local Goodwill agencies sponsor spring cleaning contests, with gently used items going to Goodwill.

Goodwill is asking you to get together your gently used items now and contribute to one of their locations. Typically this is the time they see a downturn in giving, but this year because of the weather the contributions are lower than normal.

One thing to remember is, when you give to Goodwill, you are giving someone a job.

According to Howieblog, “Goodwill relies on donated goods to create jobs for people who have disabilities that make it difficult for them to find jobs,” Clark said. “Our current shortage of donated goods, especially clothing, could mean work cutbacks for our program participants.”

Goodwill is accepting donations during normal business hours. With stores in Duluth at 700 Garfield Ave., in Hermantown at 4883 Miller Trunk Highway, and in Superior at 2401 Tower Ave.

Right now they need Men’s and Women’s clothing, and furniture.
