Celebrate Labor Day with Goodwill

Posted on by goodwillaz

With Labor Day just around the corner, it’s a great time of year to support Goodwill’s mission of helping local Arizonans find fulfilling careers. Every time you shop or donate to Goodwill, you’re supporting career services for disadvantaged Arizonans. Here are some ways to get involved with Goodwill while still enjoying your favorite Labor Day activities.

Pick Up a Paperback

Planning to relax on your day off? Unwind with a good book (or two) from Goodwill.  Browse our shelves for a selection of great reads at low prices. Mystery novels, science fiction stories, or best-sellers—you never know what you’ll find!  And the best part is, your purchase will help someone else find their happy ending.

Lounge Around

Summer is coming to a close and for Central Arizona that means cooler, more comfortable temperatures are on the way. Gear up for outdoor lounging with a patio furniture set from Goodwill. Shopping our furniture section is a great way to find something unique to spruce up your outdoor space.

Add Color to Your Closet

No white after Labor Day, as the adage goes. But that leaves an entire rainbow of colors to wear this fall. Give your wardrobe a lift—and your budget a break—by shopping for fall fashions at Goodwill. Explore the Shop section of our website for coupons and sale information.

Get a Jump on the Holidays

Labor Day marks the coming of  the holiday season. Get ready for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and other holidays by shopping at Goodwill. We’re a one-stop shop for creative costumes, decorations, kitchenware, one-of-a-kind gifts and more. Visit your local Goodwill to see what treasures you can find.

Make Room for More

With the holidays comes a lot of new stuff! Make room in your home for food, guests and gifts with a little fall cleaning. Clear out your drawers, closets and garage, then donate any unused or unwanted items to Goodwill. 90 cents of every dollar we receive from the sale of your items will go toward training and job placement services for Arizonans in need.
