Goodwill and COVID-19: Update 3-24-2020

 To our donors and shoppers,

 

Our thoughts are with you and your families during these uncertain times. Now more than ever, we can all appreciate just how small the would truly is, and the importance of coming together to protect our communities. As of 03/23/2020 Governor Gretchen Witmer and Governor Tony Evers have announced “Stay-At-Home” orders.

 

What this means for our retail locations is that we are closing our stores, but we will still be accepting donations. 

We will continue to receive donations at the designated location at each store. Please properly use the equipment that is made available to you.

 

As the COVID-19 situation changes, our plans may too. In the meantime, continue reaching out through our digital channels, and checking our facebook page, and website for updates.

Thank you.

Goodstories

Meet Andy

Andy is one of our cashiers at our Escanaba Store. We just love Andy, but the not so well kept secret is that our clients love him more. When asked, they say they shop when Andy is working so that “we can check out in his line”. Always smiling, with something nice to say, Andy makes everyone’s day just that much better. Andy was born with a couple of physical challenges, but he says he’s been able to do just fine with the supports he’s been given. After working at a few other places, he joined us almost 7 ½ years ago. Why does he like Goodwill? “Well I like the customers. I got a lot of regulars. I like seeing them; they like seeing me. And well….I just like working, working in general. Being able to work”. We appreciate that in Andy as he’s always willing to jump in and help us out if we need him to work longer. In fact Andy volunteered on one days’ notice to switch shifts with a fellow worker to allow that worker to leave earlier for a family getaway. Says Rick Pepin, Store Manager, “we feel very fortunate to have Andy as an employee and are proud he’s been with us over 7 years”. Andy is a true testament to the Power of Work.
