The brand new, 20,000-square-foot, Goodwill and Career Center on Commerce Avenue will have its grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 13 at 10:30 a.m.

The new facility will not only have a much larger retail area than its current location but will also feature a 4,400 square foot career center.

The center will be entirely open to the public and will host a number of helpful amenities including free tax preparation for individuals who make $57K or less, community job fairs, mock interviews, resume builders, and training on workforce skills and habits.

All of the proceeds from the store portion will go directly to funding and supporting the career center.

The old location at 143 Commerce Avenue will remain open until April 13, however, both locations are currently open for donations. For updates, follow Southern Rivers Goodwill on Facebook, or check out their website at
