Local News

MENASHA, Wis. (WFRV) – Goodwill of North Central Wisconsin is doing what it can to support families in need during the back-to-school season by providing in-store vouchers for merchandise.

The vouchers are part of Goodwill NCW’s GoodNeighbor program which provides more than $630,000 in free merchandise to people in need in 2019.

Goodwill partners with community organizations throughout 35 counties in north central Wisconsin to provide agencies with $25 vouchers to give to clients, allowing them to select items from Goodwill retail stores and training centers.

“Goodwill NCW is committed to providing back-to-school vouchers to community agencies and school districts throughout the territory to ensure children have clothing and shoes that fit properly and are weather appropriate as they start a new school year,” said Jennie Moore, Goodwill NCW Vice President-Mission Services. “The need is always great but even more so this year as families are dealing with the financial impact of COVID-19.”

Nearly 8,000 vouchers have been distributed to date to community agencies for the back-to-school season for back-to-school fairs, referrals, and other means of distribution.

For organizations looking to partner with Goodwill NCW for back-to-school vouchers and the GoodNeighbor program, contact November Behm at nbehm@goodwillncw.org.
