The Stapleton Goodwill opened on Saturday, May 26, drawing more than 2,000!
“The Stapleton store’s grand opening was actually the biggest grand opening for Goodwill Denver ever,” said Vanessa Clark, media relations manager for Goodwill Industries of Denver. “On Saturday, we also received more than 100 donations.”
The Stapleton location is at 7797 E. 26th Ave. in Quebec Square. Clark said the store also has a drive-through for donations.
“People don’t need to lug their donations into the store,” she said. “If they follow the arrows around back, they can drive up and a donation attendant will help them unload their car.”
The Stapleton location is also the first Denver Goodwill to have a Career Connect Center on-site.
“Goodwill opened its first Career Center in Aurora last August, and we’ve helped dozens of folks update their resumes, prepare for job interviews and successfully acquire jobs,” Clark said. “The Stapleton Career Connection Center is still ramping up, but by the end of the summer, the center will offer a full career course load including classes on job search skills, computer skills, resume writing, dress for success and mock interviews.
“In addition to the career classes, job seekers will also have free access to computers to search for jobs, work on their resumes and respond to professional emails.”
