After a brief absence, donations to Goodwill can once again be made in Kahului. Goodwill Industries of Hawaii has opened a new donation center on the mauka side of Kahului Shopping Center. The POD at the corner of South Pu’unene Ave. and West Kamehameha Ave. will be operated by Goodwill staff seven days a week, from 9am to 5pm.
The “Big Blue Box” will accept clothes, toys, books and other household goods. All donations received will stay in the community and will be sold at the Maui Goodwill store, located at 250 Alamaha St. Suite N9.
“We are excited to have a new convenient location right here in Kahului for anyone to donate their goods,” said store manager Stephanie Holloway. “When you donate to Goodwill, you are helping us create jobs for the community.”
Revenues from the sale of donations will directly support Goodwill’s job training and job placement programs; in the past year, Goodwill placed more than 1,700 individuals in jobs and served more than 13,000 people in Hawaii.
