HAVE AN EARTH-FRIENDLY HALLOWEEN AT GOODWILL®
As Halloween approaches, families will be looking for creative costumes and decorations. At Goodwill, they can find unique, gently used items to create a memorable Halloween experience. The added benefit to shopping at Goodwill is that buying secondhand Halloween costumes and decorations gives them a second life, diverting them from landfills.
By shopping at Goodwill this Halloween, individuals will be purchasing high-quality, affordable items. Reusing and repurposing items is good for people and the planet. The 7 Goodwill stores in southeast Nebraska sell items donated by 106,431 donors. With a little creativity, anyone can be transformed into a ghost, cowboy, zombie or other character of choice with Goodwill finds.
Shoppers can find fresh items at Goodwill every day, including clothing in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, as well as accessories from different decades to transform an ordinary look into a fantastic costume.
“Purchasing items from Goodwill stores is not only a sustainable practice, but is a fun way to save and create a unique Halloween costume on a budget,” said Joanne Pickrel, CEO of Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. “Revenues from Goodwill stores in Lincoln are used to fund job training and career programs that help local people.”
Revenues from Goodwill stores fund job training programs and community-based services for people with disabilities, those who lack education or work experience, and others facing challenges to finding employment. Every purchase helps people learn the essential skills they need to succeed in the workplace.
