Celebrate the Holidays with Goodwill and Gateway Mall
By Alana Sesow
The holiday season is just around the corner, and Goodwill is once again celebrating with free community events at Gateway Mall. Mark your calendars for one, two, or all four of the following festive days:
Letters to Santa
Day 1: Sunday, December 4, 10:30AM-11:30AM
Day 2: Saturday, December 17, 3:00PM-5:00PM
Want to send a letter to Mr. Claus himself? Just bring yourself and your wishes to this free workshop, and Goodwill will take care of the rest! Choose a card and decorate it with the craft supplies provided. Before you leave, place your letter in the mailbox, and we’ll ensure it gets to the North Pole. This workshop is made possible by Goodwill’s Bits & Pieces: a section in our stores dedicated to all your crafting needs.
Howl-iday Make & Take Workshop
Day 1: Monday, December 5, 5:00PM-7:00PM
Day 2: Monday, December 12, 5:00PM-7:00PM
Create a dog toy using secondhand textiles from Goodwill! All DIY materials will be supplied for you. Representatives from the Capital Humane Society (December 5) and Revolution Rescue (December 12) will be collecting a variety of items for donation, and attendees are encouraged to donate their finished DIY toys if they wish.
All events will be located in the common area behind Scooter’s. No preregistration required. Visit our Facebook page @LincolnGoodwill to learn more.
About Goodwill: For 90 years, Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. has been strengthening the Lincoln community by providing services for individuals who face barriers to employment and by offering residents an outlet for recycling unused household items and clothing. The sale of donated items in Goodwill’s retail stores remains the largest source of funding for its programs and services. It is with this understanding that Goodwill provides funding to colleague agencies to help with their own programs that align with Goodwill’s mission of willing workers employed and community resources maximized.
