LONG AWAITED GOODWILL STORE OPENS!
Goodwill Industries of San Diego County is pleased to announce the long awaited opening of the retail store in the historic firehouse on the grounds of the Alpine Community Center on Thursday, May 23, 2013. A Goodwill donation center opened over six months ago while Goodwill’s contractors and staff remodeled the vintage building, and stocked the store with treasures to help give the new location a great new start. “The doors will open to our customers at 10am, after the Alpine Chamber joins us for a ribbon cutting at 9:45am.“ Customers and donors will be treated to free cake and bottled water (while supplies last).
The Alpine store is Goodwill’s eastern-most retail location, one of 23 stores in San Diego County. “As the population moves east, we follow!” said Mike Rowan, CEO of the organization. “I’m especially thrilled” added Beth Forsberg, Vice President of Operations, “We have staff who grew up in Alpine and are living in East County, and we are proud to bring Goodwill’s mission to our hometown.”
Local residents now have the choice of shopping, or donating, or both! We are open 7 days a week for your convenience. Goodwill invites local residents to stop in, or drive by; to drop off clean reusable clothing, and working, gently used household goods. Donating to Goodwill helps the organization hire and train San Diegans – and assists others in their job search free of charge. Opening each new location allows Goodwill to create new jobs in the neighborhood and a clean, friendly budget-conscious place to shop.
Goodwill Industries of San Diego County is an autonomous, local 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization, part of an international network of independent charities sharing a common vision. Goodwill’s mission is ‘To get people with disabilities and other barriers to employment jobs by developing their skills and work habits through training and real work.’ Our purpose is ‘Getting People Jobs’. We offer job related programs that serve people with varying levels of ability, giving everyone the skills, the time and the confidence to get to work. San Diego’s Goodwill chooses NOT to conduct traditional fundraising activities; we use the revenue we gain from selling donated items; fee-for-service, reuse, recycling and salvage activities to fund the operation of paid job training programs and employment services. The things you no longer need become the product we use to give real work experience to your neighbors. The local Goodwill has nearly 1,300 employees in San Diego County, and is headquartered in Pt. Loma.

San Diego County has a history of large and devastating wildfires. Whether naturally occurring or man-made, wildfires pose a serious threat to life and property. It is imperative that residents are aware of wildfire risks and that they develop a plan to reduce their potential risk for loss. The Alpine Sheriff’s Station is holding a community meeting for homeowners who are looking to prepare themselves, their families and their homes for wildfire.
