WBFJ NEWS – Thursday, December 28, 2023
The week between Christmas and New Year’s Day is always a busy time for the folks over at Goodwill.  Shoes, stuffed animals, and electronics are just some of the things people are donating after Christmas Day, but Goodwill wants people to know there are some items they shouldn’t donate. Items for babies and toddlers are very, very frequently recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission… things like strollers, playpens, cradles, and car seats. Goodwill has no way of knowing that those items have been recalled.  Also, things like really large exercise equipment, or appliances that may have been used gasoline or kerosene or things with tanks on them, even if the tank is empty, they still have gasoline and kerosene and other chemicals inside them.  Finally, items like grills, generators, and even some power tools.  With the year winding down and people still taking time to clean out their closets — Butler encourages anyone with questions on what they can donate to Goodwill to check their website for a full list.

After the holidays is typically when people are on the lookout for budget-friendly items, and many things are sold at a reduced price.  Food is no exception, and it comes at a time when you may be getting a little tired of the leftover turkey and ham.  From Wednesday through Jan. 2, Wendy’s is offering Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers for only a penny to celebrate Wendy’s National Bacon Day Deal on Saturday.
