Community Involvement

We believe in being involved within the communities we serve. Often this looks like being present at chamber meetings, ribbon cuttings to welcome new businesses in town, promoting your store during holiday seasons or canned food drives for the local food pantry.

A big thank you to the Paris store for running their Easter coloring contest for boys and girls to have a chance to win a sweet Easter basket. This promotion was a great way to invite new traffic into their store.

Also don't forget that we offer tours of our plants for each community to learn about our mission and see the impact of the donated goods in their communities.

For more information ro to schedule a tour, contact Sarah Pierce.

The United Way of Grayson County

The United Way is a volunteerled, nonprofit located in Grayson County that seeks and addresses the root causes of key issues. As partners with United Way, we often go to different business partnered with United Way, and share with the employees the benefits of donating and shopping with Goodwill.

Friday May 4th The United Way of Grayson County was at our corporate office serving cotton candy for dessert from 11am 2pm.

Annual Memorial Day Picnic and Softball Game

Each year we get together with our McKinney Goodwill plant and enjoy a good old fashioned picnic with bingo, prizes, lunch, and softball. We were able to enjoy all but the softball before the rain.

We made memories though and that is priceless.
