Goodwill Encouraging End-of-Year Donations

CHARLOTTE, NC — With just a few days remaining until 2018, Goodwill is reminding the community that donations made by the end of the month are eligible for a 2017 tax deduction.

Goodwill is extending their hours until 9pm at more than 30 locations to make it easy and convenient to drop off donations throughout the weekend.

“We’ve seen a lot of donations, and that’s what we like to see,” said Melinda Wilshire of Goodwill Industries. “That’s what helps fuel our mission of putting people to work, so we really encourage the community to donate.”

Stores will have extra staff on hand to keep up with the increase in donations this time of year.
