I relied on Goodwill (and other charitable second-hands) for used quality goods and clothing.The obvious skimming was sudden (in the case of the Boulder CO store at Baseline and Broadway it occurred the very day a young man became manager * or * years ago). ... Goodwill claims they are a charitable company.*Notably,, the Boulder CO store at Baseline and Broadway, with new management a few years back, is skimming donations off the top and profiting off the donations in an alternate way. I am a low income person who relies on secondhands for quality used clothing and objects. I am one of the people Goodwill purports to help.*Make no mistake, this fraudulent skimming is happening at this store and others.*The difference between what was once available and what can be found now is stark. Many others have noticed what is going on.* I would like this fraud to stop today.
When people donate to Goodwill or Salvation Army they are hoping to make the lives of those less fortunate better : store employees and customers alike. You are betraying the public trust by cherry- picking for your own personal gain.
I want to know for certain what is up. It began overnight. Many have noticed that it is mostly junk filling the shelves.*What are you doing with the types of donations that could be found for decades?
I have been a Goodwill customer since I was a teen. The store I mention in Boulder was a favorite store since it opened.
I may lead the charge to urge donations to a more socially conscious actual charity store.
