Goodwill of Central Illinois and Bergner’s will hold their semi-annual donation drive from Wednesday, September 12 through Saturday, September 29. During the promotion, every item donated to Goodwill will earn the donor a 20% off coupon from Bergner’s. Donations can be made at any Goodwill or Bergner’s location.
On opening day of the sale, September 12, donors will receive double coupons. For every one item donated, they will receive two coupons. On that day, Goodwill will have a truck at the Bergner’s at The Shoppes at Grand Prairie. The goal is to “Stuff the Truck” with donations.
“Over the years the partnership for this sale has become an anticipated event by Goodwill donors and Bergner’s shoppers,” says Patty Fuchs, Goodwill President and CEO. “We are deeply grateful to Bergner’s for their continued commitment to Goodwill through this wonderful event.”
Discount coupons can be used on items not normally on sale, such as fragrances, cosmetics and electronics. The sale of these donated items provides the funding Goodwill needs to provide free programs and services to the people of Central Illinois.
