Director of Public Relations Tenee Hawkins said the closures are a result of an overflow of donations. The donation center closures will give employees an opportunity to prepare for an increased number of customers returning to Goodwill stores, she added, which is an indication that the holiday season will be busy.
Donations shouldn’t be left at the closed locations. Many of the donation centers to close are a short driving distance from other locations. Hawkins said signs for the nearest location will be posted outside closed centers.
