Treat Jobseekers in Need By Shopping Goodwill for Halloween

Goodwill Columbus is pulling out all the stops to ensure its rightful place as central Ohio’s Halloween Headquarters. In addition to traditional donated goods, shoppers will have their pick of a bevy of brand new Halloween items including thousands of brand new masks, makeup kits, wigs, and more. A list of retail store locations can be found at www.goodwillcolumbus.org/shop.

“This will be unlike any Goodwill experience our shoppers have had before,” said Tim Salvato, Vice President of Donated Goods Retail. “We really love Halloween, and think that will show in the service we deliver and the products we carry.”

 The nonprofit uses the revenue from goods sold in its stores to fund job training programs for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment.  The organization’s mission is one of transforming the lives of individuals with disabilities and other barriers through pathways to independence and the power of work. “Our mission is at the core of everything we do with our retail presence,” Salvato said. “To support Goodwill, is to support individuals in need in our community.”

 

Goodwill Columbus has been proudly serving the local community for 75 years. Since 1939 the organization has dedicated itself to building independence, quality of life and work opportunities for individuals with disabilities and other barriers.

 Goodwill Columbus is the sixth largest nonprofit in central Ohio and is among the top 100 largest employers central Ohio.  Goodwill Columbus provides nearly 2 million hours of service to more than 3,800 participants with disabilities and other barriers through day habilitation programs, community-based supported living services, employment training and job placement services.
