Goodwill can help make the holidays special!

The holidays are a time of giving, and at Goodwill, that rings especially true! When you do your holiday shopping at your local Goodwill store, you can find great gifts while building a brighter future for someone in your community.

Savvy shoppers understand that Goodwill is the best place to purchase holiday gifts and supplies at low prices. What some may not know is that with each purchase you make, you’re reducing waste and giving used items a second life as well as creating job opportunities for people in your community.

“Goodwill is your place for good finds, good gifts and good times,” said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. “With the great variety of items in Goodwill stores — from holiday knick-knacks and clothing to do-it-yourself inspiration — you can make your holidays something special with Goodwill.” 

When it comes to holiday DIY projects, Goodwill helps you go for broke without going broke! Here are a few of the many great ideas to consider as you shop at your local Goodwill store this holiday season:

·         Look for vintage glassware, utensils, serving items and linens to create a chic mix-and-match holiday tablespace.

·         Use chalkboard paint to turn a serving tray into a seriously sophisticated holiday menu board.

·         Get ready for your next seasonal sweater party, either by finding a ready-to-wear, holiday-themed pullover or by adding your own beading and holiday-themed appliques to a Goodwill sweater.

·         For the world travelers on your gift list, find and frame vintage maps of destinations visited or yet-to-be explored.

·         Create stylish and personalized kitchen organizers from baskets and canisters found at Goodwill.

Goodwill is also happy to accept donations of household items, clothing and other useful things to sell in our stores. Know that when you donate — and when you shop — at Goodwill, you’re helping someone on the path to a better job or a better life.
