Goodwill Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada is excited to have the Arden Way Store successfully reopened as a furniture outlet. The store, located at 2265 Arden Way in Sacramento, is open 11am – 7pm, seven days per week.
Goodwill’s first furniture store in the region employs 8 team members, and features 10,000 square feet of retail space, and an opportunity to find that piece of furniture at a bargain price without having to drive all over Sacramento.
Donations can be dropped off at the nearby Alta Arden store, contributing to a greener community while supporting Goodwill’s services to thousands of people living in the region. Recycling, reducing and reusing is at the heart of Goodwill’s stores and Donation Xpress centers, to move the needle on environmental concerns and reinvest the revenue back into the community – a win-win for all!
The items that are generously donated by the community help support Goodwill’s training and employment programs for disadvantaged youth, adults, seniors and veterans, along with supporting various community non-profits that offer shelter, housing, emergency services, food and resources. The sale of donated goods in stores provides critical funding to support these programs that together have provided over 500,000 services to disadvantaged individuals so far this year.
“Successful stores are critical to Goodwill’s mission, as retail revenue helps support the agency’s many human services, providing support for five area non-profits” states Karen McClaflin, Chief Development Officer for Goodwill. “We provide critical back-office functions as well as fundraising and grant writing to our partner organizations – Next Move/Francis House Center, People of Progress, Wind Youth Services and Community Link Capital Region – who offer coordinating support services to disadvantaged people.”
