Goodwill and COVID-19
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 location is that we are closing our stores, but we will still be accepting donations.We ask that anyone dropping donations off please use the provided equipment at our donor doors to help us facilitate taking donations with as minimal a staff as possible.
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.
CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
The CDC has instructions on how to construct cloth face masks. You can find instructions by following this link:
