The Lincoln City Goodwill has one of 15, 33-foot inflated plastic spiders that Goodwill is deploying in an effort to remind people that they have lots of Halloween items to choose from.
More than 700,000 pounds of all things Halloween have been distributed throughout Goodwill Industries of the Columbia Willamette’s service area.
Halloween Spending to Reach $8.4 billion
More than 171 million Americans plan to celebrate Halloween this year, spending an average $82.93, up from last year’s $74.34. Total spending is expected to reach $8.4 billion, an all-time high in the history of NRF’s annual survey conducted by Prosper Insights. The survey finds that 7 in 10 consumers plan to hand out candy, and nearly half will decorate their home or dress in costume. See more survey highlights.
The only way Goodwill funds all of its free job services is with revenue raised through the sale of donations. For more information please go to http://goodwilljobconnection.org.
