Special to the Crier
The Golden Goose Thrift Shop is now accepting and picking up clothing donations and we would like to share with you the many ways in which clothing donations to the Goose help those in need in our local communities. The Golden Goose Thrift Shop divides 100% of its profits solely between Catalina Community Services and SaddleBrooke Community Outreach, two non-profit charities that provide services to children, families and seniors in the local area.
While furniture is the most popular selling item at the Golden Goose, clothing is the second biggest seller. Approximately one third of all clothing donations meet the criteria for sale at the Goose. The remaining clothing is delivered to Catalina Community Services (CCS) on a daily basis and made available for clients at their Clothing Bank.
Clothing donations made to the Golden Goose translate in to a win – win – win scenario for Catalina Community Services, SaddleBrooke Community Outreach and the customers of the Golden Goose Thrift Shop! While CCS receives clothing for its Clothing Bank clients, both CCS and Outreach share in Goose profits to fund their local charitable programs. And last, but NOT least, Golden Goose customers receive incredible discounts on high quality, gently used clothing.
We would like to again thank all of our generous donors and ask that you continue your support of and donations to the Golden Goose Thrift Shop! Together we are making good things happen every day!
