Goodwill Industries of San Diego County CEO Mike Rowan urged residents Monday to stop by its stores to purchase holiday gifts.
Rowan said Goodwill Industries—which has 22 locations in the region—is the “perfect place" to find a last-minute present.
“Goodwill should be your holiday headquarters for unusual, one-of-a-kind, gifts," Rowan said. “We all know it’s smarter, and greener to donate to a charitable organization like Goodwill.”
The nonprofit is also offering San Diegans a chance to purchase “treasures” online at Sdgoodwill.org/shopping.html.
“We only market a handful of things online compared to the hundreds of thousands of items that come our way every year, but if you are looking for books or toys or collectibles this gives you just one more way to save money, treat your friends and family, and help the community,” said Rowan.
The stores are open seven days a week but will close on Christmas Day. For more information, visit Sdgoodwill.org or call 619-225-2200.
