Goodwill of Southwestern PA urgently needs donations – About Your Online Magazine

Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania says it urgently needs donations.

Michael Smith, the organization’s president and CEO, told Lynn Hayes Freeland of KDKA Radio that the recent blizzard and cold had a negative impact on donations to local stores.

“In the past few weeks, with all the snow and slower traffic, our donations have dropped by about 25%,” he said. “This could add up to about 8,000 donations that we are not receiving.”

Goodwill is asking the public to make a special effort to donate used clothing, shoes and household items with care to the nearest Goodwill store.
