Greenville, SC – Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina is celebrating the grand opening of their second attended donation center (ADC) since August at 1520 East Greenville Street in Anderson, SC. The ADC is set to begin taking donations tomorrow, September 28, 2022, in a newly remodeled unit.
Goodwill maintains 12 ADC locations across their 16-county region, along with each donation center attached to a retail store. Goodwill recently added the new ADC at 2700 Gentry Memorial Parkway in Pickens on August 4th.
ADCs play an important part in Goodwill’s mission of helping people become independent through education and training leading to employment. Each donation of gently used goods dropped off at a Goodwill ADC is sold in one of their 40 retail stores across the Upstate and Midlands of South Carolina. The money from those retail sales funds career education and training programs through Goodwill’s Job Connections. In fact, Goodwill devotes over 90 cents of every dollar it spends to those programs.
