Back to School Savings for the Classroom, Lunchroom and Dorm Room
Whatever your back-to-school needs, Goodwill has you covered. With our vast supply of gently used clothing, housewares and other items, your local Goodwill store is the one-stop shopping spot for preschool, K-12 and college students alike.
Goodwill Certified Computers with Windows 7 and Microsoft Office Home and Student start at just $100 and are sold at seven stores in northwest North Carolina.
In addition to the clothing, supplies, electronics, musical instruments, sporting equipment and other items you might normally think about for back-to-school shopping, other items can meet your needs with a little creativity:
- Men’s dress shirts, worn backwards, are great painting smocks for your preschooler’s classroom.
- Pack lunches and snacks in reusable plastic containers instead of plastic baggies.
- Duffel bags, luggage and hanging bags easily haul your stuff to and from college.
Not only will you be getting what you need when you shop at Goodwill, but you’ll also be helping others. When Goodwill sells donated items, the revenue funds job training programs and community-based services for people with disabilities, those who lack education or work experience, and others facing challenges to finding employment.
“It may not be foremost in your mind, but you’re helping the people in your community when you shop at Goodwill,” said Jaymie Eichorn, VP of Marketing and Communications. “Our job training and placement services helped more than 47,000 people in 2011. That wouldn’t have been possible without the revenue generated from the sales of donated items at our stores.”
