Round It Up For Hurricane Relief

Communities throughout the Gulf Coast have been devastated by hurricane damage and historic flooding. The international Goodwill community has rallied together to help our fellow Goodwill employees that have been affected by the hurricane. We too pledge our support.

From September 9 – 30, 2017, all donations received from the Round It Up campaign will go directly to support Goodwill employees along the Gulf Coast that have been affected by storm damage. The Round It Up Campaign gives Goodwill shoppers the opportunity to round up their transaction to the nearest dollar. The money raised during September will go a long way to help Goodwill employees in the Gulf Coast recover and rebuild.

We hope that you will join us in this effort. Shop at Goodwill from September 9 – 30 and Round it Up at checkout!
