Goodwill opens new donation location on Buena Vista Rd.

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Goodwill is providing another convenient way for community members to donate by opening a new donation center in the Starmount Shopping Plaza.

The grand opening took place at the new location at 2501 Buena Vista Road on Friday, July 25 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

People who donate at the new Buena Vista donation center between July 25 and August 1 will be eligible to enter to win two tickets to the RiverCenter and a $100 Visa gift card.

"Just know your gently used items that are donated help create jobs and help change people's lives," said manager Karen Woodruff. "That's what we're about here at Goodwill."

Goodwill's mission is to help individuals with disabilities or disadvantages to secure sustainable employment through education, training, work experience and career placement services. All of these programs, including job fairs, are made possible through the donation of gently used clothing and household goods that are sold at Goodwill Retail Stores.
