We visited the fabulous, new Goodwill store in Silverdale on Sunday, and donated 2 Hefty bags full of our clothes. The store was light, bright, clean, and it felt like we were on a treasure hunt. We browsed all through the store, and I bought a covered casserole in my grandmother's (antique) English bone china pattern; it has a couple of tiny chips on the rim, but the lid covers them. The people who worked there were very courteous. Goodwill is a wonderful organization.
A couple of years ago, shortly after Katie passed away, I wrote this posting about a bequest that she made. After we learned that she was going to die, she wrote her will, by hand, leaving half of her savings account to charity. The charity she chose was Goodwill. They printed a story about it in their newsletter at the time.
In case you missed the posting, you might want to travel back in time and read it; if you don't want to do that, I am posting a scan of the newsletter article here. If you want to enlarge it for reading, simply click on the image:
