Goodwill — Here To Help You Help Us

By Staff | Jul 6, 2011

Dear Editor,

We would like to thank the people of Emmetsburg and the surrounding areas for their continued support. The Spencer Goodwill store opened its doors in October 2001 and it is because of their continued support that we are able to fund our many missions.

We are here to help you help us. Our donation door is staffed during all of our store hours. We encourage the public to take a look at Goodwill Industries when they are upgrading their household furnishings, dishes, clothing, electronics, televisions, bicycles, radio, knick knacks, glass wares, collectables, clean toys, baby furniture in good condition, books and many other items. We want the public to know that we accept usable or re-sellable items.

It is because of loyal donors that we are able to continue to offer quality products at value prices. ?Goodwill is no longer the garden variety thrift store. We have made several updates to modernize our location and will continue to do so. Goodwill is now sizing most clothing in our retail locations to allow our customers to not only save on merchandise but save valuable time. Our products include but not limited to clothing, household items, seasonal decorations, shoes, sporting goods and furniture. We have everything including the kitchen sink. Our product changes daily so each day is a new store and a new shopping experience.

The dollars received go to fund the many Mission Services that Goodwill offers. Some of those services include Job Training/Coaching for persons with barriers in their life, Camp Goodwill, Connection Center located in Sioux City, Youth Build – program for young people 16-24 years work toward their GED or HS diploma while learning job skills by building affordable housing for low income families, and GoodGuides Mentoring, a service for at risk youth 12-17 years. And many more — please go to our website www.goodwillscia.com for more information.

We invite all of our past, current and future customers and donors to come visit our store and see all that we have. We would love the chance to visit with you.

Our retail store hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. During those hours we accept donations. All items should be in good working condition. Our drop off door is located on the North side of our building facing Taco Bell. Please do not leave donations outside. There are a few things that we can not accept because of landfill restrictions and added costs. If you have any questions please call us at 712-264-1175 and we would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Again, thank you for your continual support and we look forward to seeing you soon.
