Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries thanks the residents of Boston for their longstanding support through the donation of clothing and household goods.
At this time, Goodwill has an urgent need for donations and is asking friends in Boston for help. Donations usually drop in winter months, but the decline has been greater and earlier than usual. At the same time, the need for donations is high and growing. More families than ever are turning to The Goodwill Stores to get the items they need at affordable prices. And Goodwill supplies the clothing for the guests of Pine Street Inn.
The donations are also important for Goodwill’s job training programs. Individuals with disabilities and other challenges get on-the-job training and paid work experience in the handling, sorting, shipping and selling of donated merchandise.
As they have in the past, residents of Boston are encouraged to clean their closets and drawers, and donate gently used clothing and household items to Goodwill at the donation sites at 1010 Harrison Ave. in Roxbury, 965 Commonwealth Ave. in Allston-Brighton, 678 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain, and 470 West Broadway in South Boston.
Every donation supports Goodwill’s mission which is to provide not charity, but a chance to the people in our community who need it the most.

This is an excellent review [Banner 12-17-09]. It makes the book sound irresistible. Bijan Bayne always makes whatever he reviews sound fascinating even if you are unfamiliar with the subject; and even more so if you are. It would be helpful if the title, publisher, and price of the book could be included in italics either at the beginning or end of the article or in a sidebar. Otherwise, it swings.
