Valentine’s Day at Lincoln Goodwill
There are more ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day than a romantic dinner with a box of chocolates. So whether you are having a girls’ night out, watching scary movies with your dog, or giving your mom a much deserved call, we want Goodwill to be a part of your preparation and celebration.
Say bye to BAE
First, you can get rid yourself of the lingering memory of your ex by donating their stuff to Goodwill. You can finally move on and support employment programming in the process. In addition, donate something that you love, but don’t use anymore. You don’t have to leave your house to do this! If you have a large furniture item that no longer fits with your décor, schedule a curbside home pick-up under the Donations tab and we’ll free up your space for free.
Spread the Love
You can also utilize Goodwill to spread the love this Valentine’s Day. Sign up to volunteer with us and see first-hand how we work to help those with barriers to employment. All you have to do is submit a quick online application and attend a volunteer orientation. Then you can spend your V-Day doing good for the community. You can also shop our stores to spread the love by finding the perfect gift for someone you care about. Buy paper and markers from our bits and pieces section and make a good ol’ handmade card. To add extra zest, find a cute jar to fill with candy! Tie a ribbon around the lid and you have yourself an affordable and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift.
No matter your relationship status, you deserve to treat yourself! Come into Goodwill and you will find a unique set of jewelry that changes every day. You can buy delicate hoops for work and shimmering teardrop earrings for later in the night (or maybe even little heart-shaped studs if you’re in the spirit)! The fun part is you never know the treasures you will come across. Don’t miss the $10/10 clothing sale the Friday and Saturday before Valentine’s Day. It’s the perfect time to treat yourself. Bring a bag to donate and fill it back up with affordable new items to fit into any V-Day plan. In addition, when you round up your change to the nearest dollar at check-out you help our partner organizations: Lincoln Literacy, Heartland Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Community Justice Center, and YWCA Job Outfitters. Treating yourself supports Lincoln organizations that work to give people job readiness tools.
