Goodwill donors rewarded with coupons

By: 8 December 2011 No Comment

It’s the most wonderful and possibly busiest time of the year. Goodwill Industries of Arkansas is here to help. Finish last minute holiday shopping and make room for new gifts in one trip to your local Goodwill.

Now through the end of the year, receive a 20 percent coupon every time you shop and donate. Coupons are available at www.goodwillAR.org and Goodwill’s Facebook page.

Goodwill has 25 convenient locations that accept donations. All donations are tax deductible and receipts are available upon request. For this year’s tax return, donations must be made by Dec. 31, 2011. Most donation centers are open to 7 p.m. and later. Check the website for hours and location information.

Goodwill accepts the following items: clothing, footwear, outerwear, accessories, housewares, books, games, furniture, arts and electronics.

Donations to Goodwill are sold in local stores. The revenues fund job training programs and support services that help people with workplace challenges and disabilities to achieve and maintain economic independence and an increased quality of life. In 2010, 5,066 people benefited from Goodwill’s career services.
