We all know the purpose behind Thanksgiving is to spend time with loved ones — not to stress over holiday entertaining and tablescapes.
Salinas, CA, October 28, 2019 – Goodwill Central Coast would like to remind the community how easy it is to turn donated, marked-down items into the perfect party with eye-popping, fall-themed decor. Shopping at Goodwill can alleviate both stress and the annual strain felt on pocketbooks.
Savvy Goodwill shoppers have always found it exciting to see what’s new, and what’s possible to make out of items donated by others. It’s the epitome of responsible upcycling since money through the sale of donated goods helps support and grow Goodwill’s critical community-based programs and services. The bottom line? The environmental and social impacts cannot be denied.
Turn baskets into cornucopia-style table centerpieces, use natural candles to add warmth, elevate artificial flowers with a quick spray-painting, or stock up on critical kitchen tools and accessories.
The possibilities are endless when shopping at Goodwill Central Coast stores. And all the bits and pieces shoppers buy help strengthen their own communities.
Remember, if you’re not in the shopping frame of mind, you can donate new and gently used items to Goodwill — all treasures for someone else to find and turn into jobs. From home pick-ups to tax write-offs, Goodwill makes donating as easy as possible. Find out more at www.ccgoodwill.org.
