Important COVID-19 Updates

Friends of Goodwill, 

We'd like to take the opportunity to share some of the things that are happening at Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina, as we continue to address the needs of people in our community while taking the necessary precautions to keep our associates, participants, shoppers, and donors safe. 

We continue to follow guidance from health and governmental agencies and take recommended actions to maintain a safe and clean environment for our associates, donors, shoppers, and participants.  Those actions include: 

  • Practicing Social Distancing.  Signage, floor markers, and announcements are in place to reinforce and remind everyone to observe social distancing. 
  • Providing Personal Protective Equipment.  We will provide masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer for all associates.  We have also installed plexiglass shields at cash registers to provide a barrier between Goodwill associates and shoppers checking out. 
  • Cleaning and Disinfecting.  We will continue regular cleaning and frequently disinfect surfaces, including shopping carts, register areas, computer peripherals in the Job Connections, restrooms and dressing rooms, and other high-traffic areas.  
  • Promoting recommended hygienic practices such as frequent hand-washing.  

Many have asked us how they can help.  Here a few small things that can have a tremendous impact:

  • Continue to donate.  Our donation centers are open to serve our donors.  We offer no-contact service but look forward to assisting you as needed. 
  • Make a financial gift.  Every dollar makes a difference, as much now as it ever has.  
  • Be the Good!  Please continue helping others and supporting your community.  It makes a difference.  

People still need Goodwill.  And Goodwill still needs you. 

Thank you for your continued support of Goodwill, and for your patience and understanding through these critical and challenging times.  #GoodWillCome
