Still Back to School Shopping? Check out your local Goodwill

Back to School time is just around the corner for us here in Oregon. We’ve had a busy summer and I’ve found myself caught a little off guard with the amount of school shopping I still need to do in a short time. As if school supplies aren’t expensive enough for three kids, I’ve also got to try to get in some clothes/shoe shopping as well. Being on a budget, I try to find great deals. When I am short on time, I know that I can count on Goodwill for clothes for the whole family at affordable prices.  I like to shop there because I get them name brand clothes at a great price and it helps the community at the same time. I am pretty picky and can find some really nice, gently used clothes and shoes that last them quite a while.

Salem OR -mom Heather has been able to check off a lot of boxes on her kids’ back-to-school list. After winning a $250.00 JAM’N 107.5/ Goodwill shopping spree, Heather Usrey is well on her way to having fulfilled her kids’ get back-into-the-classroom- needs. (And she still has a gift card balance of more than $50.00)!


Goodwill also has new and donated school supplies such as backpacks and books, dorm room finds and electronics. When shopping in any of the 50 Goodwill Industries of the Columbia Willamette stores – revenue directly goes to support local persons in need of free job services or job training in NW and Central OR and SW WA. Last year alone, more than 530,000 services were provided to people with barriers to employment. Persons, for example, who might have educational or language difficulties, physical disability, and broken work histories. Save money, get kids the stuff they want, be good to the planet and lend a hand to your neighbors in need. That’s a great start to a good school year!

When you shop at Goodwill, you are helping support Goodwill’s mission of providing vocational opportunities to people with barriers to employment by giving them free career training and development, English classes and help getting citizenship, and also helping them find job opportunities and much more. You can find more information about Goodwill and their Job Connection page, on the Goodwill Facebook Page and on Twitter.
