According to a release, Goodwill will no longer be accepting donations at this time and has issued the following request to the community:

"Please hold onto your items until we can reopen. We look forward to seeing you and your donations after that time. Please also be kind and place your trash at your local waste or recycling facility. Removing trash takes funds away from our mission of providing job training and employment support to our community, which is needed now more than ever."
