Merry Thriftmas winners


Merry ThriftmasThe “Merry Thriftmas” campaign, sponsored by Goodwill Industries, Inc., is a concept brought to us by a group of community volunteers who call themselves the Goodwill Elves. The Goodwill Elves are devoted to finding new, innovative ways to benefit the community through altruism. This year, they approached the manager of the Goodwill retail store in South Papillion with an idea that would boost Goodwill’s visibility during the holiday season and give the Papillion community an exciting event: Merry Thriftmas.

How It Works

"Merry Thriftmas" at Papillion Goodwill

Watch the KMTV News Now story about “Merry Thriftmas!”

The Goodwill Elves wrapped the four display windows at Goodwill in South Papillion and filled the windows with holiday and gift items. On Dec. 1, the Elves unwrapped the windows at the Merry Thriftmas Unveiling Event. From Dec. 1 through Dec. 14, everyone who visits the South Papillion Goodwill store* can stop at the checkouts to receive a ticket, which they can fill out and drop in the box of the window they would like to win.

On Dec. 14, the Goodwill Elves will host the drawing and announce the winner of each window during a Facebook Live event — and the winners will receive everything in their window! That means the staging furniture, the lights, the Christmas tree and all the other items, including some holiday surprises!
