Goodwill Industries of Central Florida is doing its part to help those impacted by Hurricane Ian in southwest Florida, specifically employees of the nonprofit who lost everything in the storm.

The organization is hosting a special round up campaign at all 31 retail stores across Orange, Osceola, Lake, Seminole, Volusia and Brevard counties where shoppers will have the opportunity to round up their purchase to the next dollar at checkout. One hundred percent of the extra funds will go to help those in need. 

"Every sale at Goodwill supports the community through job creation and helping our neighbors achieve their goals," Goodwill said in a press release. "And now the nonprofit wants to extend that goodwill and help its southwest Florida partners get back on their feet."

The round up began on Monday, Oct. 10, and will conclude when stores close on Monday, Oct. 24. The nonprofit will also match the amount raised through the round up.
