Brands with a Cause, Giveaways

Do you shop GOODWILL for a good cause? 2020 Bring Good Home Award Wa. Giveaway

I was not compensated for this feature

Do you shop GOODWILL for a good cause? We want to hear about it!

Pam Nelson, a Librarian at Pacific Christian Academy in Federal Way, Wa does! Here is her story:

Pam turned an old closet and just 1,900 books into a full library with over 8,000 books. When the school had to let go their Librarian years back due to budget cuts, the kids lost their reading space. Pam took to scouring Goodwill on weekends to find new books that would revive the space and give the kids a library space again.

Goodwill’s Olympics & Rainier Region annual “Bring Good Home” donation of $500 for her good will will allow Nelson to purchase up to 1,000 more books for her library.

I use Goodwill frequently. I bought furniture to furnish my condo when I moved in. It’s great when you don’t have a lot of money to work with. I use it constantly to decorate my place. I have a Goodwill on my street, and it’s been a convenient asset to me. If I have company over, I go to Goodwill and buy something else to liven up my place. I don’t spend tons of money, so I don’t have die with the item either.


I shop goodwill looking for items and ideas for weekly crafting at a local retirement community that my daughters and I volunteer at for the last two years. We have not been craft the last few weeks because all visitors are currently banned but we are saving up ideas when we can finally start volunteering again.
