Welcome Back Goodwill!

I hope that you all have been staying safe and healthy during our time apart. It’s been a difficult two months, but we are seeing the beginning of our return to serve our clients and customers.

We will reopen most of our stores on Friday, May 15th and our two Orleans Parish stores on Saturday, May 16th adhering to the strict guidelines from the State of Louisiana. Employees will wear protective gear including masks and gloves. Sanitizing products have been delivered to all stores and employees will clean stores regularly. The number of customers will be limited in each store and will be required to wear a mask.

We will continue to follow the guidance of the State of Louisiana regarding the full return to our administrative offices. We look forward to when we can all be together again.

In the meantime, I ask that you continue to practice healthy living including social distancing, regular hand washing, wearing a mask and other recommendations from our public health officials.

Thank you for your continuing dedication to our communities. The need is now greater than ever and we will be here to serve.
