Quarter 4 – 2023 Goodwill of Northern Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula Round-Up

Every quarter the 5 Goodwill locations of Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan will be hosting a Saturday “Round-Up Your Change” event that helps support an organization of their choice in each of their communities. Any amount raised by the stores, Goodwill NWUP will match, and 100% of the Round-Up Change proceeds will go directly to the organization!  One of Goodwill NWUP’s many missions is strong community support.  By holding monthly Round-Up events, we hope to encourage giving back and supporting organizations in each of our communities!  Every little bit of change helps, and we appreciate your generosity!
