ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — As heightened concerns continue to evolve around COVID-19, Goodwill Industry of the Valleys has made the decision to close stores. The closures go into effect tonight, March 24th at 6pm.

Goodwill’s Donation Centers will remain open and continue to accept donations. Donations will be accepted Monday through Saturday, 9am – 5pm and Sunday, 12pm – 5pm. Attended Donation Centers not located at Stores will accept donations as well, Monday through Saturday, 9am – 5pm and closed on Sunday.

“Goodwill wants the community to know we are here to help during this crisis.”

Kelly Sandridge, VP of Brand Strategy and External Affairs, Goodwill Industry of the Valleys

Goodwill’s virtual services will continue to be available to the public during this critical time.

“We have worked hard over the past week to get virtual services online so the public can have access to both live classes and online training assistance. We are still enrolling in training programs for Information Technology and Healthcare, which can also proceed virtually. There is also an online job board of area employers who we have found that are hiring during this crisis. By continuing to donate, and shopping online, you are supporting Goodwill’s ability to continue to provide these services.”

Kelly Sandridge, VP of Brand Strategy and External Affairs, Goodwill Industry of the Valleys
