The week’s nearly over, and what a week it’s been. Many of us in the Greater New York and Northern New Jersey area could use an extra reason to celebrate. How about this: a Second Halloween!
We know New Jersey is planning on holding their Halloween this Monday, and to show our support (and have some much-needed fun ourselves), we’ll be extending our Halloween Window Contest voting until this Sunday night!
Come vote for your favorite window at http://bit.ly/gwhalloween and, if you didn’t manage to find a costume during all the storm prep, visit one of our stores to pick your perfect disguise. Yes, that’s right – many of our stores are open! We recommend calling your local store to confirm its open and operating normal business hours. You can find all contact info here: http://www.goodwillny.org/findgoodwill.aspx
Right now, the following stores are closed due to the storm and the black out: Bergenfield, Harrison, Jersey City, Springfield, Fairfield, Rockaway and Pequannock in NJ; Bellmore on Long Island; and the Village Boutique and 23 Street in NYC. We hope to have news on their re-openings very soon.
Of course, if you’re looking to donate, we can certainly use that, too. Please know that all donations to Goodwill fund our programs and services which help people people back on a financially-stable track – and that this includes helping people who’ve suffered unforseen events.
Take care and be well, fans!
