FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GOODWILL HOPES THEIR LAST-MINUTE DONATORS WILL NOT PROCRASTINATE ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER YEAR End of the year donation event hopes to see its biggest turn out yet DENVER, Colorado (Dec. 2, 2010) – Goodwill Industries of Denver is gearing up once again for Procrastinator’s Delight, its popular annual end of the year donation event on December 31, 2010. This is the last day of the tax year for people to receive tax deductions on all donations made to Goodwill, so it really is a true Procrastinator’s Delight! Goodwill Denver and its 20 metro area donation and retail centers hope to see increases from last year in both donations and the amount of people who attend the last-chance event. "At Goodwill we look forward to Procrastinator’s Delight ever year, and this year we are hoping to see more donations than ever,” Goodwill Denver’s Public Relations Manager Jeni Anderson explained. “The public’s donations make such a positive difference in our communities and in the lives of the people that Goodwill touches all throughout the year. It’s not every day you see the CEO or VP of Marketing at your local stores, so we would love to see each and every procrastinator out there in all their donating glory on New Year's Eve this year!” Goodwill Industries of Denver is a nonprofit organization that helps disadvantaged youth and adults all across Northern Colorado and the Denver Metro Area through job training, college preparation for high school students, and employment opportunities for disabled members of the


community. Individual donations and the profits from their retail centers completely fund these programs that are the foundation of Goodwill itself, and the organization continues to change countless lives, as it has already done over the last 90 years. Goodwill is also a leading member of the “go green revolution”, priding their locations on saving over 55 million pounds of donated items from ending up in landfills each year. To encourage their consumers to recycle and purchase unique clothing items from their stores, Goodwill features several different time- and weather-appropriate fashion trend spots called “Thrifting Denver” on their popular Facebook page. Procrastinators rejoice, Procrastinators unite (today), and procrastinators delight! Goodwill Denver hopes this year’s event will be its best yet, and they are depending on high numbers of attendees and donations to achieve this goal. It’s your last chance to do something good this year– don’t wait until January 1, 2011 to come to Goodwill’s Procrastinator’s Delight event! Make sure you get that 2010 tax deduction and donate before you start procrastinating on next year’s resolutions already!
