Goodwill Two Harbors Celebrates Grand Opening!
This past Saturday Goodwill Duluth celebrated the Grand Opening of our retail store and donation center in Two Harbors, MN. Community leaders and Goodwill representatives were on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and welcomed shopping and donations from the community. There were also prize giveaways and food and refreshments for customers.
“The revenues generated from the sale of merchandise in Goodwill stores support the training and employment programs offered by Goodwill Industries” said Marge Bray Executive Director. “The donation center will create jobs and a convenient way for people to donate the things they no longer need, diverting those items from landfills.”
Goodwill relies on the support of the communities that it serves to donate gently used clothing and household goods to sell in its retail stores. Donations are accepted at retail stores during store hours throughout the Northland. Goodwill Industries of Duluth values its partnership with the Two Harbors community as it will help turn donations into jobs.
Goodwill Industries of Duluth serves 15 cities and 29 counties throughout the greater Minnesota and Wisconsin area. Goodwill’s mission is to provide employment and employment services to people with disabilities or other barriers to employment. Last fiscal year, Goodwill Industries Duluth employed 295 individuals through its programs.
