COVID-19 (3/25/20): An important update regarding All Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake, Inc. Locations

By March 25, 20204 Comments1 min read

Goodwill Supporters:

To support public health efforts and abide by Governor Hogan’s mandate, Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake, Inc. locations will remain closed until April 5th. Our government contracts remain open due to their “essential” status. All employees will continue to be paid through next week.

Tentatively, we plan to re-open stores on Sunday, April 5th and all other operations on Monday, April 6th. Be advised that this is subject to change and please continue to monitor our communication channels for updates.

We ask that you continue to hold your donations until we can re-open. Leaving your donations at a closed store will force us to dispose of them, impacting our ability to be the best stewards of your donations and decreases resources available to support the communities we serve.

We will continue to update you as more information is made available.

With appreciation,

Lisa Rusyniak
President & CEO
