MEDFORD, Ore. — Goodwill Industries of Southern Oregon says this is the busiest time of year for donations to come through their doors.
1,500 donors are expected to drop off donations in Jackson County this month alone, with most of those coming in the final week. That’s due to the last push for donors to get a receipt for the upcoming tax season.
December’s spike is about 50% more compared to any other month. Officials say each donations makes a big impact because the donations fund the stores, which fund job training programs.
“It’s open to the public, they can come in and go online, search for a job, they can come get help with interview skills, help with writing a resume, and it’s all part of what those donations make possible,” said Goodwill rep Suzy Lewis.
There are 7 drop-off locations in Jackson County and most items will accepted.
