Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit's Dearborn retail store is all set to open Sept. 8. Now, they just need help stocking the shelves.
The nonprofit will host a donation drive from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18. The drive will be held in the parking lot in front of the soon-to-open store between Newman Street and Michigan Avenue. The official address is 22451 Michigan Ave.
Goods accepted will include clothing, appliances, toys, kitchen items and electonics. All items must be new or gently used, with no rips, tears, or stains. All items, including furniture, must be dropped off at the donation drive.
For a full list of accepted items, see the PDF attached to this post.
Goodwill of Greater Detroit Public Relations Director Mark Lane said that the company is greatful to see donations continue to rise, but could always use more. Also, the Dearborn donation drive provides a chance for local residents to give to the store in their own neighborhood, as well as to get acquainted with Goodwill's mission and services.
