Knitting and Crocheting

Goodwill provides warm hats and mittens to children during our annual Christmas Shoe and Mitten Parties. For many years, local volunteers have knitted hats and mittens for children attending these events. If you have the special talent and the time, we will provide the yarn.  Use your own pattern and please note that even children in kindergarten like large sizes. Items you make will need to be delivered to Goodwill by December 1st. Call 712-258-4511 or 877-608-7555 to get involved.

Christmas Shoe and Mitten Parties

Children in grades kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to Goodwill’s annual shoe and mitten parties before Christmas each year. Goodwill collaborates with local agencies to identify families with Children in need. Volunteers are needed to help with these events throughout our territory.

Community Donation Drives

With the help of volunteers in local communities, Goodwill offers Community Donation Drives. Goodwill will provide a trailer to collect household donations. Community members donated household items they no longer need while supporting the mission of Goodwill. If you are interested in volunteering to host a Community Donation Drive contact Bonnie Belongea at 712-258-4511 for more information.

Become a Goodwill Ambassador!

We hear the phrase “I had no idea Goodwill did that” frequently from community members. Although most are familiar with our Goodwill stores, there is so much more to learn about Goodwill. On a tour of your local Goodwill, you will learn the story behind our stores. We are excited to share about the mission programming we offer thanks to our generous donors and shoppers. To schedule a tour of any of our locations call Briget Solomon at 712-258-4511 or solomonb@goodwillgreatplains.org.
