We are abiding by the recent mandate from Governor Lujan, closing all non-essential businesses. But the generous donations keep coming. Donors are being asked to hold their drop-offs until stores and their donation centers reopen.
Shauna Kastle, President, and CEO of Goodwill Industries of New Mexico says, “You can imagine how grateful we are for the community’s support at this time! But now we have to plead for donors to stop dropping-off items. We hope the community will understand what’s happening and help us by holding drop-offs until we are permitted to reopen. We know the public wants their donations to be used toward funding free programs and services for New Mexicans and not to be subject to loss or damage.”
We understand people are in the midst of spring cleaning, and while working from home, they may be re-organizing their space. So, we will be ready to happily accept drop-off donations as soon our organization is back in operation. As a partner in the community for 79 years, Goodwill remains committed to advancing our mission to provide skills training, job development, and social services to New Mexicans. Our commitment is genuine now during these difficult times and will continue to be in the weeks, months, and years ahead. Thank you for your continued support of Goodwill and all those served!
