Another suggestion for getting more donations, how about a pick up service? I myself have a lot to donate, but w/out a truck I just store the extra stuff in my garage 'until I get to it'

Just something that GW will not do!! :)

Location, Location, Location. And also prior to even hearing last yr of the new GW store going in I had boxes upon boxes of nice clothing, shoes,household items, toys & random stuff , all in good shape and re-salable . I carried around in the back of my van for a month, spent 2mths of wkends sorting what didn't fit, didn't use etc. Finally got it loaded only to be told when I went to drop off , they wouldn't take it had to much inventory & same w/ Sal. Army so I thought I would take to GW truck in Hood River next time I was over there then I noticed the truck at Cascade Square, they we're more than happy to take it and even helped me unload, more help than I ever received from the other places over the yrs of donations. I haven't been in the GW store & have heard both positive & negative things. But why can't the 3 stores that are obviously in to helping people get together & support the community together?
