Good Deeds by Goodwill
In trying times like the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, we as Texans must pull together.
Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth has partnered with the City of Fort Worth and Tarrant County Office of Emergency Management to be an official Hurricane Harvey relief donation center. While we’re not set up as a disaster relief organization, we do have the infrastructure in place to accept large quantities of donations and transport them throughout the city.
Our 23 area retail stores and 18 attended donation centers are serving as donation sites for much-needed relief items, which will be distributed through the City of Fort Worth and Tarrant County Office of Emergency Management to evacuees that have been relocated to North Texas.
For a full list of donation sites and hours, please visit https://www.goodwillfortworth.org/donate/find-a-donation-station/.
Additionally, Goodwill Fort Worth provided 700 backpacks filled with new socks and toiletries to evacuees at the City of Fort Worth routing center at Wilkerson-Greines Athletic Center.
Shoppers in our stores can also round up their purchase to help our own – many Goodwill employees from our sister agencies at Goodwill Industries of Houston, Goodwill Industries of Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana (Beaumont/Lake Charles) and Goodwill Industries of South Texas (Victoria/Corpus Christi) have lost everything and are displaced from their homes. 100% of funds raised through the Change for Harvey program during the month of September will be donated to those employees to help them rebuild.
We are so happy to be able to assist in this effort alongside the City and the County.
