Sip, Shop and Spread Joy: A Goodwill Holiday Tale

Our Sip and Shops are some of our favorite events of the year! We love to interact with shoppers and share our mission…but maybe the best way to share this story is to take some cues from the season. Settle in with a warm beverage and some festive tunes as we share a new twist on a classic holiday tale!

It was 3 weeks before Christmas—and all across the Coastal Empire…

Shoppers were looking for deals and gifts—from stylish clothes to the best air fryer!

When what to their wondering eyes did appear…

The Goodwill Southeast Georgia team! Their Holiday Sip and Shop is here!


With shoppers arriving and the Statesboro Goodwill team in their festive best…

There were plenty of exclusive racks to shop—no time to rest!

From Christmas décor, to toys and books, to Bit of Blue…

There were solutions for everyone on their list, even the littlest ones, too!

What holiday celebration would be complete without treats?

With our Sip and Shops—appetizers, desserts and drinks are provided—it’s in the name, isn’t that neat?

But it’s not just what you find in the store…
At Goodwill, your purchase means something more.


Shoppers learned the revenue from their treasures answer the call...

To provide funding for our Opportunity Center--making a brighter future reachable for all.

And isn’t that the best part of this time of year?

Giving to others—and then seeing their happiness—makes our focus become clear.


As the night drew a close, there were plenty of smiles.

New friends were made, despite those who had traveled miles.

Shoppers heard our team exclaim, as they drove out of sight,

‘Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good find!’

Your change changes lives.

Your financial contributions, donations and purchases all fund our employment training and job placement programs.
