Goodwill Is On The Move To NIU Residence Halls

May 9, 2017

Goodwill is stationing containers in NIU’s residence halls this week as students move out for the summer.

It’s part of a bi-annual campaign to collect unwanted items that may otherwise go in the trash.

Mary Ann Stratus, with Goodwill, said that's because residence halls often don’t have the time or manpower to bring items to donation centers.

“It only made sense for Goodwill to come in, bring the bins to the students, and just make it easy for them to donate,” she said.

Stratus said they’re in particular need for items like shoes and jeans.

A state representative will lead a workshop Tuesday at DeKalb's Goodwill on the process of getting jobs with the state.

The event will cover the application process, which jobs are currently available, and how to make sense of the position titles and descriptions.

Andrea Kuzniar, with Goodwill, says the workshop is meant to provide assistance to a variety of people.
