Yesterday, Goodwill Industries International Spokeswoman and Clutter Diet Founder Lorie Marrero came to visit our Astoria headquarters and giveaway signed copies of her fantastic book at our Greenwich Village Boutique.

Lorie (center) joined District Manager Gidget Despiau and Store Manager Coco Ogilvie at the Village Boutique yesterday to meet fans, give our books and tackle the topic of clutter.

We’ll have a full post on what Lorie saw on her visit next week, but for now, we wanted to show off a few key people she met along the way – all of whom thank you for your support, enabling them (and us) to do a job that matters, i.e. to create jobs, to stop landfill growth, to celebrate reuse, and to spread Goodwill.

Lorie and Wilberto Alverez, Contract Shop Supervisor, find a bit of open space for a photo in the bustling contracts shop.

With a background of donation bales, Victoria Nikci, Director of Production, showed Lorie what happens to donations that aren't fit for resale. Don't fret - donate! Even those items (stained, ripped, etc) are kept out of landfills.

Thank you, keep donating and enjoy the weekend!
