Triad Goodwill Helps the Homeless This Holiday Season

Employees Donate Supplies for Toiletry Kits

"Triad Goodwill employees are giving back this holiday season. They collected donations of toiletries, hats, gloves, scarves and socks for kits to distribute at shelters in their five county service area. Triad Goodwill employees have assembled more than 100 kits so far and will finish the assembly process on Monday morning, Dec. 21. Employees will then distribute the kits to shelters in Alamance, Caswell, Guilford, Randolph and Rockingham Counties in North Carolina.

Each holiday season, Triad Goodwill collects donations for other local non-profits at their company holiday breakfast. This year, their social committee (recently renamed Team B.A.M.M.), chose area homeless shelters. Team B.A.M.M. stands for Buy-In, Appreciation, Motivation and Mission.

Triad Goodwill thanks the Greensboro Grasshoppers for their generous contribution for the purchase of additional supplies for the kits, as well as Carrie Crotts, who assembled 15 bags as part of a civics project at Ledford High School in Davidson County.
