A message from Michael J. Smith, President/CEO of Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania.

In these very challenging and uncertain times, I want to express my sincere thanks to the public for your support and patience.

We appreciate those who have been collecting and holding onto donations for us.  We hope to be able to open our donation centers next week.

In this rapidly changing environment, thank you also for your patience as we work to adapt our mission services while practicing social distancing. We are working to use our resources the best that we can to serve as many people as possible.  While many of our face-to-face programs and services are on-hold due to COVID-19 guidelines, we have adapted other programs to online platforms so that we can continue to provide job training and education to help people who are facing challenges to build skills, find jobs, and grow their careers.

To talk to someone about all of our programs and services, contact our Welcome Center at 1-877-499-3526 or welcome@goodwillswpa.org.  We will gladly answer any questions you might have about what we have to offer at this time.

Thank you again for being there for us, throughout this crisis, Goodwill will be here for you and the communities we serve.

Remember: Good. Will. Come.

 

Update: Thursday, March 26, 2020

At Goodwill, our mission is to put people to work. Last year, we provided 10,624 adults and youth in our communities with life-changing job training and education programs. We anticipate a greater need than ever in the coming months. All of our retail stores, which provide well over half of our funding, have been closed. Your monetary donations are so important right now.

A generous funder will match your monetary donation 1:1. That means, if you give $20, Goodwill will receive $40. Click here to give now.

While our stores are closed, please continue to shop with us online. ShopGoodwill.com offers a great way to support our programs and services during this time.

When this crisis passes, people will turn to Goodwill to get back on their feet.  We will be there for them.

For the latest information on our coronavirus response, keep an eye on this webpage or follow us on social media. 


Update: Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Keeping our community healthy and safe by helping to contain the spread of COVID-19 is the highest priority at Goodwill SWPA. As a reminder, our stores and donation centers are closed at this time. We are strongly urging donors to hold donations until our donation centers reopen.

With donation centers closed, items left outside donation doors and exposed to the weather could be damaged or ruined. Please allow us to be the best stewards of your donations as we can be and wait to donate until we can properly receive and process your items. There will be a great need for them in the coming weeks and we thank you in advance for your cooperation. Thank you for supporting Goodwill.


Update: Thursday, March 19, 2020

A message from Michael J. Smith, President/CEO of Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania.

During the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania has maintained that it will follow the directives from government and health officials.

Earlier today, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf ordered nonessential Pennsylvania businesses to shut down to help curb the spread of Coronavirus.  Therefore, Goodwill SWPA stores will close to shoppers and donors as of 9:00pm this evening, Monday, March 16, 2020. 

Our six Goodwill stores in North Central West Virginia will remain open to shoppers and donors, utilizing a reduced schedule of 11am to 7pm.  We will closely monitor all directives from the State of West Virginia and act accordingly.

We will continue to provide programming to vulnerable populations, utilizing reduced hours, on-line service delivery and social distancing strategies wherever possible. For any questions about our programs and services, please contact our Welcome Center at 1-877-499-3526 or email welcome@goodwillswpa.org.

We will consider reopening when we receive a directive from Governor Wolf that we will be able to do so.

We will continue to post additional updates on our webpage (www.goodwillswpa.org) and our social media (www.facebook.com/goodwillswpa/ and twitter.com/gwswpa) as we receive them.

Thank you once again for your patience as we join together as a community to face this unprecedented challenge.
