Local Goodwill Offers Donations, Aid for Camp Fire Relief

All 12 of Goodwill's Southern Oregon locations will be collecting donations and offering aid to evacuees who have relocated to the area.

MEDFORD, Ore. — As communities across California and neighboring states rally to help support those impacted by the most recent devastating wildfires, Southern Oregon Goodwill (SOGI) says that they've come up with a way to do their part.

"Each Goodwill in California is assisting fire survivors in different ways from fund raisers to financial donations at the register to assist directly with fire relief for affected communities," the organization said in a statement on Wednesday. "Southern Oregon Goodwill is responding in two ways to help our California neighbors and those affected by the Camp Fire who have relocated to Southern Oregon."

The first way is through donations — all of Goodwill's local stores will be giving customers the option to "Round Up" their purchases to the next whole dollar (or contribute more), and all of those donations between November 19 and 30 will be given to the North Valley Community Foundation — a fund set up specifically for wildfire victims in the area.

"Potential donors can ask at the register how to round up a purchase to the nearest dollar, add in any donation dollar amount to a purchase, or make a single donation transaction. Goodwill will contribute funds raised as a lump sum directly to the fund in December," SOGI said.

The Round Up donation drive includes all 12 stories in Douglas, Jackson, Josephine and Klamath Counties, including the Ashland boutique and As Is outlets in Grants Pass, Klamath Falls, and Medford.

In addition to donations, SOGI says that it will be sponsoring any evacuees who have relocated from Butte County to Southern Oregon — providing them with clothing, shoes, or blankets. In order to sign up for specific assistance, call 541-772-3300 to ask for Sandy for details. The phone is manned weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

"Goodwill store managers will also direct inquiries to this phone number exclusively for best response to need," said SOGI.
