Goodwill stores in Maine don’t want your used panties
That’s it. Everything is covered in the title of the story. Thanks for the reading.
Alright, alright, I guess there should be a little explanation as to why there is an item in circulation that has to do with “used panties” and Maine Goodwill stores. Well, to put it plainly, it all comes down to paying attention to what you are doing.
Of course, giving back to places like The Salvation Army, Goodwill, and other stores looking to help those in need can be a very rewarding feeling. However, we can make things a lot easier for people who work in these places by not inadvertently sending things that they not only don’t want, but don’t want to deal with. Example? Your old haggard underwear.
According to The Kennebec newspaper, Goodwill Northern New England is used to people giving things away that they can’t use and will have to be thrown away. And, although they are very happy, people are so willing to give, they want people to be aware of what they are too. should not make a donation.
When you give Goodwill something that they can’t use, they inevitably have to throw it away. This costs the employee goodwill time who sorts the items and also adds up to their trash pile (which then needs to be picked up). In fact, in the past 12 months alone, Goodwill Northern New England has spent $ 1.2 million just on garbage collection. Let it sink in.
Now, I’m not saying the $ 1.2 million is all in panties thrown, but I’m saying it has a lot to do with people not paying attention to the list of acceptable items at Goodwill. Do you want it by weight? Goodwill Northern New England threw over £ 13million in bad donations last year. Again, all of this weren’t disposable thongs, but it was everything they just couldn’t bring back.
