As people think about spring cleaning projects while they spend more time at home, Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin and Metropolitan Chicago is reminding the community their store and donation centers are temporarily closed and they are unable to accept donations at this time.
Goodwill is monitoring their locations for anything that has been dropped off, something that is becoming increasingly difficult to do. Donors are asked to help keep staff safe and a safe environment around stores by holding those donations until they can be accepted.
“We rely on donations to fund our mission to provide people with disabilities or disadvantages jobs and training, and we know that when it’s safe to reopen the need to help many people in our community find work is going to be greater than ever,” said Jess Owens, communications manager. “Receiving donations at that time will be critical for us to continue our mission work.”
