LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (December 18, 2009) – Goodwill Industries of Arkansas is opening its newest Donation Center, located at 1188 North Steamboat Dr., Suite 2, at Wedington Place in Fayetteville, Friday, December 18. The Donation Center hours are Monday – Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., and Sunday, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
The Donation Center provides donors the convenience of a drive thru donation area, allowing for a quick and easy donation experience. “You pop the trunk, we do the rest,” said Brian Itzkowitz, President & CEO of Goodwill Industries of Arkansas. Goodwill accepts donations of new or gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, electronics, and household goods.
The opening of the Fayetteville Donation Center furthers Goodwill’s expansion in Northwest Arkansas. Goodwill opened a new and expanded Store, Donation Center, and Job Center in Springdale earlier this month, with a Bentonville Store and Donation Center soon to follow.
“We are growing in Northwest Arkansas, not only in the number of Stores and Donation Centers that we are opening in the area, but also in the number of Arkansans that we will able to serve through offering employment services, education, training, and jobs” said Itzkowitz. “The new locations will add over 60 jobs in Northwest Arkansas, and we are thrilled to be a part of creating new economic development in the region.”
Goodwill Industries of Arkansas operates 16 retail locations across the state, at which donations are accepted daily.
