Heart of Texas Goodwill said with its stores closed due to COVID-19 they are asking people not to donate for now.

WACO, Texas — Heart of Texas Goodwill is asking donors to hold their donations until its centers in Bell, Brazos and McLennan counties reopen.

The Goodwill locations were closed following the statewide COVID-19 mitigation directives.

"We realize it is a significant inconvenience for many people in our communities, be we are asking, please hold onto those valuable donations to give to Goodwill when we reopen,” Heart of Texas Goodwill President and CEO, Shannon Wittmer said.

Heart of Texas Goodwill is currently making plans to be able to rebound quickly and reopen area Goodwill stores and donation centers as soon as the government officials recommend, a press release said.
