To our shoppers and donors,
As the situation around the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, the health and safety of our employees, customers, donors and jobseekers remains at the top of our priority list. With that in mind, we have decided to close our stores, attended donation centers and career centers for the next two weeks beginning Monday, March 23. We will continue to accept donations at our store donor doors Monday –Saturday from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
We take our mission to put people to work seriously and are committed to continue to support our employees with pay and benefits during this time. Additionally, all workforce development programs that can safely continue will do so. We are also taking our mission-focused work online as there are a number of employers who need staff to meet critical needs during this time. Jobseekers are encouraged to visit our virtual career center at www.careerconnector.org or call 844.344.WORK (9675) for one-on-one job search support from our career coaches.
As you may know, the revenue generated in our stores is used to support job seekers across North Georgia. During these challenging times, we need your support more than ever. In the spirit of goodwill, we ask that you join our efforts to help us fulfill our mission to put North Georgians to work.
- Shop online: You can continue shopping with us virtually at goodwillng.org/shop-online
- Donate gently used goods: Drop off a donation at our stores. Once we are all up and running, we will need your treasures to keep our stores up and running.
- Donate cash: Make a monetary donation to allow us to continue to offer job search support.
We will continue to reach out with updates as this situation continues to evolve. For the latest information on our coronavirus response, please visit goodwillng.org/coronavirus-response or follow us on social media. As always, we thank you for your continued support of Goodwill. Stay safe and take care of each other.
