Goodwill Facing Donation Shortage

February 14, 2013 Updated Feb 14, 2013 at 2:49 PM CDT

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com)-- Goodwill in Duluth is facing a shortage of donations and is asking for the public's help to bring their inventory up.

The nonprofit agency relies on donated good to create jobs for more than 100 people each day.

Those working at Goodwill say this winter has been especially slow because of cold snaps and snowy conditions.

A shortage of inventory could mean fewer work hours for their employees.

"Your donations actually create jobs for people that have disabilities or other barriers to employment," said Valerie Clark, Public Relations Specialist with Goodwill. "Maybe it would be harder for them to find a job otherwise."

Goodwill has locations in Duluth, Hermantown, and Superior.

There's currently a need for clothing items for men, women and children, and gently used furniture.
