Support your local community by thrifting at Goodwill stores
Goodwill Industries-Suncoast is joining Goodwills across the nation in celebrating National Thrift Shop Day on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019.
National Thrift Shop Day is dedicated to promoting the art of thrifting — the practice of shopping for affordable, one-of-a-kind fashions.
Shopping at Goodwill is a socially responsible way to support education and employment programs in your own local community.
Collectively, 87 cents of every dollar you spend at Goodwill helps create job placement and training opportunities for anyone facing challenges to finding employment, including people with disabilities, older workers, youth and young adults, and people reentering the workforce after incarceration.
Thrifting at Goodwill is an environmentally friendly option for building your wardrobe with eclectic, vintage pieces while embracing the three Rs of sustainability: reduce, reuse and recycle.
This National Thrift Shop Day, Goodwill Industries International has partnered with four fashion, beauty and style influencers to share their thrifting tips with shoppers.
Popular YouTube influencer Kristen McAtee takes viewers along as she visits a Goodwill store, and offers insider insights on how to shop the racks. Goodwill has partnered with McAtee through the Ad Council’s Creators for Good program.
Nicole Mazur, @thatgirlwitheyeliner, regularly collaborates with Goodwill to showcase her glamorous, thrifted fashions on Instagram.
Caroline Vazzana @makingmanhattanofficial, is a fashion editor, stylist and writer, living and working in New York.
In 2018, Goodwill-Suncoast served more than 67,000 people in West Central Florida and placed 1,782 people in jobs.
