Goodwill Suits Vets: Thank You!

While we were posting on Goodwill’s Sandy Relief efforts, another great cause was being attended to: this past November’s Goodwill Suits Vets.

On Veterans Day weekend, to honor and to thank all U.S. veterans for their service to our country, Goodwill NY-NJ provided free professional, work and retirement clothing worth over $20,300 to more than 400 vets who went to any of our 40 area Goodwill stores. From Saturday to Monday, November 10-12, staff from our Goodwill stores helped a steady stream of vets who came with their buddies or family.

Veterans share their style (and smiles!) at the Goodwill Steinway Store in Astoria, Queens.

For the full story, come on over to our programs/services blog Where the Goodwill Goes.

Thank you for making programs like Goodwill Suits Vets possible, thrifters! Your donations and purchases help your communities stay strong and help people rebuild lives.
