Mission: Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland and East Central Ohio, Inc. works to improve the quality of life and employment opportunities for all people.

I have written several times over the years about Goodwill Industries. I actually think of it as the gift that keeps on giving and here at 95.5 The Fish, we are so greatful that Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland is one of the Supporting Sponsors of THE MOM SQUAD MOTHER'S DAY EVENT!!!!

If you have never visited a Goodwill location, this is what I do and I offer it as a suggestion to you:

The next time you have a need, for example a blue cotton skirt, a pair of black dress shoes, a suit jacket or some fancy plates for a girlfriend luncheon....WHATEVER...go to a Goodwill location FIRST. I truly believe you will be surprised by the neatness of the stores, the organization (size, color, item type), the selection...believe it not, though the slightly used donations are fabulous, there are brand new items there too!  I've been taking care of my Mom for 7.5 years. These have been lean times financially but the Heavenly Father keeps providing and Goodwill Industries has been a blessing.  Over the years Mom has gradually lost weight, she doesn't like pull on shirts at times so a couple of years ago I decided to see if I could find some clothing for her at the Goodwill in my neighborhood. I found 5 beautiful Evan Picone button shirts for pennys... literally! WOW! I was so excited. I have since purchased two couches, a DVD player, a rattan DVD stand (I'm all about wicker and rattan), dress shoes, hiking boots (on my birthday 2 years ago - YAY ME), rain and winter coats, 2 leather purses, beautiful plates, and a queen size silk bedspread that is so luxurious I can hardly believe its all mine, and the list goes on. PLUS, if you have something wonderful to donate, keep track of those items because they are tax deductible. Whether you are financially stable or things are a bit wobbly like an uneven table...supporting Goodwill Industries makes good CENTS. HA.

Your donations AND your purchases help Goodwill Industries provide so much for so many. You can even become a Goodwill volunteer!

Well, enough about me....tell your family and friends and run to your local Goodwill location. Go to their website, to find out more. Check out their history and special events too. Hope to see you May 5th!

Food...A Culture?

Whenever my daughter comes to town from Northern VA, we do a lot of restaurant eating. One of the major differences I noticed between living in Northern VA and in the Greater Cleveland area, is eating out there, for many families and individuals, is a daily it is more so occasional.  I have said many times, the difference is "cultural".  Click on the site below to read a wonderful article on the "Culture" of food and how you can and why you should create a food culture at home for your family....and make it a healthy one!
