COLORADO SPRINGS — The COVID-19 pandemic is causing a lot of places to close, including Goodwill.
In a press release, Goodwill announced starting March 24 all retail stores and non-store donation centers in the state will temporarily close until Monday, April 6.
To prevent the unsafe conditions when donations are left, Goodwill’s in-store donation centers will remain open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
All items will be placed into quarantine for a minimum of 72 hours.
Goodwill’s e-commerce website, PickGoodwill.com, which lists thousands of items for purchase, will also remain open.
“This is an unprecedented challenge for everyone, including the thousands of Coloradans living within the communities we serve,” says Karla Grazier, Goodwill of Colorado’s President & CEO. “The health and safety of all Goodwill employees, shoppers, donors and volunteers continues to be a top priority."
Goodwill has also implemented increased cleaning procedures and reducing hours in response to the increasing cases of COVID-19 in the state.
In a press release sent Tuesday, Goodwill said they are constantly monitoring this changing situation and will make adjustments as they develop.
