Getting Alabama Back to Work with Additional Safety Measures

Alabama Goodwill is safely reopening all nine retail thrift stores, five attended donation centers and resuming career services to start rebuilding our community and “Get Alabama Back to Work!”

Alabama Goodwill provides vital community services through its career center and career services. “Now more than ever, our career services will play a critical role in assisting the most vulnerable segments of our community who have been laid off or displaced from employment”, stated Alabama Goodwill President and CEO David Wells. “Providing these community services requires funding, and our Goodwill retail thrift stores provide a direct financial source to support FREE career services.”

Locations and services will reopen on Wednesday, May 6th at normal business hours but with additional safety measures. Team Members will control the number of shoppers entering stores based on the governor’s physical-distance guidelines, wear masks and other personal protective equipment, sanitize shopping carts, and clean other high- touch surfaces throughout the day. There will also be directional signs to guide shoppers through the store and at the cash registers to encourage social distancing. Donors, shoppers and job seekers are encouraged to visit AlabamaGoodwill.org to find the nearest location, hours of operation, career services and available jobs.
