Dig in your closets or go up in the attic--whatever it takes--Goodwill is desperate for donations and you don't even have to go there yourself--Goodwill will come to you. The store says it provides job opportunities for all kinds of people, including those who are trying to get on their feet, but they can only do it with your contributions. For a truck pick up call 850-574-4422.

    I worked at G/W till i asked for a raise from 5.15 i felt i was worth at least 5.25, They fired me ,told me to go dig holes or wash car windows,I could not though because my back is hurt .Maybe it was because i was not cool with them taking all of the good stuff and just putting out over price junk

    to Goodwell. Your statement is not true. I think this store has a little bit of Casey Anthony in there with using the truth.

    I have talked to people who used to work at Goodwill and they told me that when the donations come in the sorters get what they want out of it before any of the donations go out on the floor. Also I was told that very little of what they grab they pay for. Furthermore, I am very disappointed with Goodwill for their high prices, of which it seems the profits help so very few. If you want to give to someone give to the Salvation Army! Their store off Jackson Bluff needs a lot of help. Also there is the Childrens Lighthouse and the Habitat for Humanity thrift stores. I personally would rather dontate to one of these charities who has a proven, VISUAL track history of helping our community, than giving to Goodwill. I mean, where does the money go?

    The donation center on Monroe St. is filled from top to bottom. When will you sift through those items and place them in stores? How many other centers are filled to capacity? At least cover the windows so passing motorist won't see how much stuff has accumulated before asking for more.

    Employees are not allowed to shop the store in which they work and must enter through the front door of a store not through the backroom. They are only allowed to shop before or after their work hours and are not allowed to hold merchandise aside. Workers caught violating this policy are disciplined and may be terminated.

    It they are in such need, maybe they should take a look at the actions. I went in there one day with a car full of stuff. Three cars came in right behind me and the employees headed for those cars and left me standing there. One car was a big man could lift his own stuff. People are not going in there with this kind of treatment. How much of the GOOD stuff do the employees take home for free. Good will need to take a look at their organization and the leaders.

    There have been a few times I've seen items priced high and could have gotten the same thing new. But I like knowing the clothes have been washed and preshrunk and whatever I try on will fit the same way after I wash it at home. Get a new shirt or jeans at Target, etc. and I guarentee they'll shrink even if it says preshrunk. Books are high priced there too...but if you go during their half price days....I'm just saying you have to look for a bargain and notice the days they have half pricing.
