As stores across Orange County begin to reopen, we are excited to report that select Goodwill of Orange County stores and donation centers reopened today!
If you follow our Instagram account, you may have seen us share about the nonprofit’s #GoodsforGoods campaign to encourage people to save their goods (donations) for good until its donation centers reopened. And if you’ve been holding on to those donations, now is the time to show your support by donating!
While Goodwill of Orange County’s locations were not classified as essential business, the life-changing impact they make in Orange County is 100% essential.
If you are not familiar with the nonprofit, they help people facing barriers to find and keep jobs, which provides purpose, pride, and dignity – something that is more important than ever in light of COVID-19 and the rising mental health crisis.
Goodwill of Orange County resells the donations at its locations to not only fund its employment programs but other life-changing programs and services like the Tierney Center for Veteran Services, a comprehensive resource serving Orange County Veterans and their families.
