COVID-19 Special Update

People help people. We must remember this during this time.

As a not for profit organization supporting career development and job creation programs to help Albertans with disabilities to gain meaningful employment, Goodwill Industries of Alberta continues our strong dedication to support these individuals. We salute people helping people, from our donors and shoppers, to our wonderful volunteers and team members.

In light of recent events associated with the spread of COVID-19, Goodwill has employed preventative measures to protect the health and safety of everyone who frequents Goodwill.

Measures include:

  • Following guidelines set forth by Alberta Health Services and Health Canada.
  • Providing extra cleaning and disinfecting supplies to our stores and facilities.
  • Updating, revising and implementing new cleaning procedures.
  • All staff members have been given guidelines for best hygiene practices, including but not limited to, washing their hands with anti-bacterial soap often, practicing social distancing and staying home if they are sick.

Our stores remain open and we are still accepting used clothing and donations. Your support means that more Albertans with disabilities can experience dignity and joy, through the power of work.

We understand this is a very difficult time with your loved ones and our community. As circumstances continue to develop, one thing will remain the same. We will make decisions with the health and well-being of our customers, team members, volunteers and donors as our highest priority.

People help people and this what we plan on doing going forward with your support.
