Goodwill Event

I recently had the pleasure of attending a Blogger Day event at Morgan Memorial Goodwill! We got a 50% coupon and some time to shop, followed by a tour of the facility and a presentation about the kind of services and community assistance that Goodwill provides.

For more a century, Goodwill has been a leading Massachusetts provider of job training, career development, and youth programs that help equip individuals with the tools necessary to sharpen their skills, meet new challenges, and create more rewarding and independent lives.

Job Training and Placement Services, both short- and long-term, help individuals with disabilities and other barriers to self-sufficiency to develop the skills to take advantage of opportunities in the job market and meet the workforce needs of a range of employers. Career Services in Boston Career Link, the one-stop career center operated by Goodwill, gives job seekers – individuals who are looking to advance or change careers – universal access to a broad range of career services.

86 cents of every dollar spent at the thrift stores goes towards these programs! Woot! Let's keep shopping!

My scores - A red velvet blazer and a shiny tuxedo jacket!

Un-Sellable clothes get baled and sold to other industries.

Outlet store in the foreground, sorting facility in the back!

I want everything polka-dot these days, too bad it had weird pirate sleeves.

LOVED this crazy (eighties?) colorblock dress, but sadly it was a no-fit.

Pin It!
