Your purchases help individuals in the local community overcome barriers and gain the skills they need to find meaningful employment. But the magic doesn’t end there; you can also contribute to Goodwill’s mission by donating your gently-used Halloween items and costumes. By giving back, you extend the cycle of goodwill, ensuring that others can find affordable and unique Halloween goodies while supporting valuable community programs. So, grab your cauldron and broomstick and head to Goodwill for a thrilling Halloween adventure that will leave a lasting, positive impact.

Happy Halloween thrifting ghouls and goblins!
