While it may still take days, weeks or even months to get a full picture of the destruction Hurricane Ian left in its path across Florida’s peninsula, Goodwill Industries of Central Florida stands ready to help the community.
Starting Monday, October 10th, the nonprofit will host a special roundup campaign at all 31 retail stores across Orange, Osceola, Lake, Seminole, Volusia and Brevard counties. Shoppers will have the opportunity to round-up their purchase to the next dollar at checkout and know that 100% of the extra funds will go to help our neighbors in Southwest Florida, specifically employees of Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida who lost everything in the storm.
Every sale at Goodwill supports the community through job creation and helping our neighbors achieve their goals. And now the nonprofit wants to extend that goodwill and help its Southwest Florida partners get back on their feet.
Goodwill’s “Hurricane Ian Relief Roundup” begins Monday, October 10th around Orlando and Central Florida and will conclude when stores close on Monday, October 24th. Goodwill Industries of Central Florida will also match the amount raised through the “roundup.”
