Goodwill Supports Our Veterans

Posted by Goodwill Staff on November 10, 2020

Veterans-THUMBNAILAs Veterans Day approaches, Goodwill gives thanks to all those who served our country.

Discount for Veterans

Every Tuesday, all year long, Goodwill of Southeastern Wisconsin & Metropolitan Chicago offers Veterans a 10% discount on all items in the store. Veterans who are members of the Goodwill Rewards Program are pre-coded with Military status and automatically receive the discount. Veterans who sign up for the Rewards Program for the first time on a Tuesday will get an immediate discount on that shopping trip.

Support and Assistance

Too often, some of our veterans face a difficult transition to non-military life including financial obstacles. Some face homelessness.

Goodwill partners with agencies in the Metro Milwaukee and Metro Chicago areas to provide clothing and household items for Veterans through the Goodwill Cares Community Assistance Program. In Milwaukee, the VA Medical Center, the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans, and the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative all partner with Goodwill. The Hines VA Hospital in Chicago is also a Goodwill Cares Community Assistance partner.

These agencies submit candidates for Goodwill to activate shopping vouchers. All the Goodwill stores in Southeastern Wisconsin and Metropolitan Chicago are available for redeeming this assistance.
