At Goodwill, we are overwhelmed at the generosity of community members who support our mission through a variety of actions including volunteering time, donating money, donating clothing and housewares at our stores and much more.
Next Thursday April 24th, we will host our Goodwill Runway Show at Body Zone in Wyomissing, PA . This annual event is made possible by the volunteer commitment of many supporters including our Committee Members who organize the event, local businesses through sponsorship, donations and silent auction donations, stylists and models who represent the amazing looks you can find for great values at Goodwill stores and many more behind the scenes roles who come together for one night of fun, food, fashion and raising money toward the Goodwill mission.
As a tribute to our volunteers, we decided to dedicate a blog post to one of our amazing volunteers, stylist Samara Stork.
Name and Occupation: Samara Stork, Brand Manager for Bell Tower Salon, Medi-Spa and Store in Wyomissing, PA, belltowersalonspa.com/.
