Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey Inc. (Goodwill NYNJ) celebrated the official opening of its Donation Center and small-format store in Hillsborough, New Jersey.
The small-format store offers a unique selection of previously owned donated goods that local donors have dropped off, including home décor, books, glassware and other great knick-knacks and doodads. The 2,093-square-foot Goodwill site serves as a sustainability resource to help residents re-use and re-purpose the clothing and goods they no longer need.
“We designed this new smaller-format Goodwill location to create a space where Central Jersey residents can give a second life to the clothing and goods they no longer need with convenient donations,” said Katy Gaul-Stigge, Goodwill NYNJ President and CEO. “This new idea is a great for donations and doodads.”
The Goodwill Donation Center and small store is located at the shopping plaza at 649 US-206, Hillsborough, NJ 08844.
Revenue generated in Goodwill’s retail locations, including stores, outlets, attended donation centers, and the online site ShopGoodwill.com/NYNJ, supports the Goodwill NYNJ’s training, job connections, on-the-job coaching, and retention services that support individuals with disabilities and other barriers on their journey to employment and a better life for themselves and their families.
