MILGARD WORK OPPORTUNITY CENTER IN TACOMA TEMPORARILY CLOSED

Due to Governor Inslee’s mandate for all educational institutions to cease in-person classes, our Milgard Work Opportunity Center in Tacoma will remain temporarily closed to the public until April 24th.

We are reviewing opportunities for online learning and will provide information here on site and on our website at goodwillwa.org

We have had a report of a COVID-19 case at this location.

We have taken the necessary steps to thoroughly clean and sanitize beyond our standard
procedures.

LONGVIEW & UNION GAP WORK OPPORTUNITY CENTERS TEMPORARILY CLOSED
Due to Governor Inslee’s mandate for all educational institutions to cease in-person classes, our Work Opportunity Centers in Longview and Union Gap will remain temporarily closed to the public until April 24th.

We are reviewing opportunities for online learning and will provide information here on site and on our website at goodwillwa.org

We have had no reports of COVID-19 cases among our employees or at these two facilities.

TEMPORARY STORE CLOSING
Given the fast spread of COVID-19, we have become increasingly concerned for the health of our retail employees and the community at-large.  Therefore, we have decided to close our retail stores effective this Thursday, March 19, for two weeks, through April 2.  During this period, we will continue to pay our retail employees.

We will continue accepting donations at all of our store locations Monday – Sunday from 10am-6pm, with the exception of Graham, Tacoma Outlet and the Blue Boutiques.  Our online stores will continue to operate, selling many unique treasures on ShopGoodwill.com, eBay and Amazon. All Goodwill employees who continue working are taking necessary steps to help prevent the spread of illness, per CDC guidelines, like frequently washing and sanitizing their hands, counters and public areas, social distancing and staying home when ill.

We thank you for your understanding.
