PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — On Friday, seven more Goodwill stores opened in Oregon, ready to accept donations.

Goodwill Industries of the Columbia Willamette is also in the process of hiring hundreds of employees who were let go when the stores first had to close due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“As of today, 250 more Goodwill employees are working,” said Spokesperson Dale Emanuel. “It is awesome to see my coworkers. It’s awesome to see lines, like what we’re seeing of donations. It’s spring cleaning, and they’ve been kind of trapped with their stuff.”
