Get Ready to Unleash Your Spooky Side with
🎃 Goodwill Southeast Georgia! 🎃
🍂☕As the shadows grow longer and the air grows at least a *bit* cooler, Halloween lurks just around the corner. But fear not, because at Goodwill Southeast Georgia, we're anything but spooked! This is our favorite time of year, when we get to help you discover the perfect, wallet-friendly, and eco-conscious costume that's uniquely yours. With our 8 Boo-tiques set to open their doors on September 28th, we're your ultimate destination for accessories, decorations, and all the essentials for your DIY costume adventure.
👻 Join us on the countdown to Halloween by tuning into our "What's Good?" blog and following us on social media. We'll unveil how a quick trip to your nearest Goodwill Southeast Georgia Boo-tique can work its magic, transforming your costume dreams into reality!
🔮But wait, there's more! We're pulling back the curtain to give you a sneak peek into the enchanting world behind the scenes. Our spirited squad is hard at work, brewing up a cauldron of delights for this Halloween season!
👹Our Halloween Lookbook photoshoot was a scream! Every year, we release our lookbook to ignite your imagination and inspire the perfect costume. Our retail Associates from across the region, including Wilmington Island, Vidalia, and Pooler stores, donned their Halloween best to showcase this year's trends. A huge shout-out to Amber Lee Photography for capturing these spooktacular looks. And that's just a taste; there's plenty more in store when you visit our Boo-tiques!
🧛Mark your calendars for next Friday, September 22, when we'll be a guest on WSAV's The Bridge. Our team, alongside the incredible J.J. Crawford, Regional Manager at Goodwill Southeast Georgia, had a blast chatting with host Patty Turner about costume ideas. We handpicked fantastic solo and group costumes, demonstrating how you can conjure them up for $30 or less!
🦇A recent Halloween study by Big Village unveiled a hair-raising statistic: Americans plan to splurge the most on costumes, averaging a spine-chilling $47! Over three-quarters of those surveyed felt the bone-chilling effects of inflation on their Halloween budgets. As a result, three in five adults plan to craft their own DIY costumes.
🧟That's where we step in with our budget-friendly costumes! Not only will you save a cauldron of cash, but you'll also feel good knowing you're giving these items a second chance. Did you know that a whopping 83% of pre-packaged costumes are crafted from single-use, oil-based plastic? Break free from the clutches of fast fashion and let Goodwill Southeast Georgia be your Halloween shopping haven!
🍬🍫But the treats don't stop there. Your Halloween costume purchase at Goodwill supports our workforce development programs, benefiting our 5 Opportunity Centers in Savannah, Statesboro, Brunswick, Waycross, and Jesup! These programs equip our neighbors with the tools they need to tap into the power of work, ultimately transforming their lives. So far in 2023, Goodwill Southeast Georgia's Opportunity Centers have empowered more than 1,800 individuals and placed 303 in steady, mid-wage employment.
So here's to a spellbinding Halloween season! Stay tuned for more spooktacular content coming your way soon! 🕸️🕷️
