Cafaro Company donates to Goodwill after successful holiday clothing drive

Local News

A donation from the Cafaro Company means more opportunities for Goodwill Industries clients.

The company donated $2,500 to the nonprofit on Friday.

Goodwill set up a donation booth at the Eastwood Mall during the holiday season. Six thousand pounds of clothing donations were collected.

“It was wildly successful,” said Samantha Turner, with Goodwill Industries. “We raised 5,000 pounds of donations in just ten short days. That happens over such a long period of time in our normal donation centers. So the reception was well-received out here in Niles, it was really great and the Cafaro Corporation really helped us to move that forward.”

Goodwill provides jobs and training for people with disabilities or other barriers to employment.

The cash donation will be used to help pay for computer training programs.
