PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Are you all about deals, savings, and thrifting? National Secondhand Wardrobe Day brings awareness to just that.
All the proceeds from Goodwill stores go toward fulfilling its mission of “supporting individuals and families who are working to better their lives”. Tuesday, the organization’s President and CEO Don Johnson said people would be surprised at the items the organization receives.
“Some items still have the price tags on them,” said Johnson. “It’s an everyday adventure. We try our hardest to meet the customer demands and put that new product, in their eyes, out every 10 or 15 minutes, so it’s constant for us.”
