Goodwill to Host Holiday Events at Gateway Mall
By Alana Sesow
The holidays are just around the corner, and Goodwill is celebrating with three free community events at Gateway Mall!
On Sunday, December 3 from 10:30 to 11:30 AM and Saturday, December 16 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM, Goodwill will host Make and Take Workshops. Goodwill will supply secondhand cards, paper, markers, ribbons and more for kids to write down their holiday wishes and mail a letter to Santa. Attendees are also invited to create a holiday ornament using provided craft materials. These workshops are made possible by Goodwill’s Bits and Pieces: a section in their stores that meets all crafting needs from utensils to ribbon, jewelry to glue.
Finally, on Monday, December 11 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM, Goodwill is joining Gateway Mall’s Paws and Claus event. Dogs are invited to take a photo with Santa, and owners are invited to create an environmentally friendly toy using secondhand textiles from Goodwill.
All events are located in the common area behind Scooter’s at Gateway Mall. For event updates, follow Goodwill on Facebook @LincolnGoodwill.
