Happy Birthday To Us!

Centennial logoToday marks the 100th year anniversary Goodwill was founded.

Back in 1915, two clergymen from Brooklyn developed the concept of Goodwill to help persons with disabilities and disadvantages achieve self-sufficiency. Instead of receiving charity, people in need earned a living collecting and selling donated clothes and household goods. This is how our retail stores were born.

We kick off our celebration today in our NYC stores. With a purchase of $25, customers will receive a commemorative “Goodwill Centennial” tote bag. Below is a list of today’s participating locations:

Washington Heights Store – 512 West 181st St.
Harlem Store – 2196 5th Ave
Stuyvesant Square Store – 1704 2nd Ave
23rd Street Store – 220 East 23rd St.
79th Street Store – 217 West 79th St.
Chelsea Boutique – 103 West 25th St.
East Harlem Store – 2231 3rd Ave
Bronx Store – 361 East 149th St.
Greenwich Village Boutique – 44 West 8th St.

We will continue to announce participating stores throughout the week on our blog and Facebook page.
