A Partnership that Matters: Making a Difference with Goodwill Southeast Georgia

I recently had the great honor of teaming up with Goodwill Southeast Georgia for Goodwill Industries Week. This is an annual event that encourages people to shop at their local Goodwill and brings awareness to all of the great work that Goodwill does for our local communities. One of the biggest ways that that are able to fund their programs is through donations from people like me and you. Those donations, mainly clothes, are sorted and then sold and various Goodwill retail locations. The profits are used to fund programs like the Senior Community Service Employment Program, Pathways out of Poverty Program and GCF Learn Free, among many others.

To help bring more awareness to Goodwill, I was asked to style the gorgeous Renee LaSalle from WSAV’s show The Bridge. Every day during Goodwill Industries Week, Renee wore a different outfit with pieces that were found at our local Goodwill. Tops, skirts, dresses, jewelry, belts and even a fabulous pair of shoes all made the cut, and did not break the bank! I was also asked to appear on The Bridge with Renee to help kick off Goodwill Week and talk about all of the fun that we had putting together her outfits. Here are the amazing outfits that I helped her put together:

I also helped out by arranging a Kendra Gives Back Party to benefit Goodwill Southeast Georgia. I love any excuse to team up with Kendra Scott and this event was no exception.

It was so nice to meet everyone that I have gotten to know through Goodwill and to raise money for such a good cause. Plus, adding new Kendra Scott pretties to me closet is always a bonus!

I hope that you enjoyed all of the outfits that I helped to put together and that it inspires you to go searching for something for yourself. When you shop at Goodwill you are helping to change someone’s life and your money is going to help our community in so many ways! And if that’s not enough, the prices are Goodwill are unbeatable!  You can update your entire wardrobe without breaking the bank!
