Goodwill Looks at Holiday Must-Haves and Asks “Where Are They Now?”


With the holiday season just around the corner, Goodwill encourages everyone to reduce clutter and support the mission of Goodwill by donating items that they are no longer using. To underscore this effort, Goodwill takes a look at the toys that caused a stir over the past 20 years with, “Where Are They Now?”

tickle-me-elmoFrom plush toys like Beanie Babies and Tickle Me Elmo to gaming console favorites Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, each season brings a holiday must-have that whips consumers into a frenzy. Some gift purchases stand the test of time while others are forgotten before choruses of Auld Lang Syne fill the air.

During the holiday season, we encourage everyone to take a look at the unneeded items around their homes and to consider a donation to Goodwill. Each donation not only clears clutter, but also creates job opportunities and funds employment services for people in the communities we serve.

Preparing donations can become a family affair this holiday season. Get your children involved in donating the toys that are no longer played with and teach them about the impact a donation can have with the Goodwill Donation Impact Calculator. You can also learn about recycling versus donating with the fun and challenging Donation Match Game.

Remember, Goodwill is a great place to shop for your holiday gift-giving and entertaining needs. From gently used fashion accessories to dinnerware and serving pieces, our Goodwill stores are a great, economical choice for your holiday shopping.

Goodwill wishes the Marion, Delaware, Union, Crawford and Morrow communities a happy shopping and giving holiday season
