Good for Goodwill

Good for Goodwill

DENVER, Colo. – In a corner of the Goodwill Thrift Store in Glendale employee Nancy Thurman plucks a pink sweatshirt from a shopping cart piled with clothing. FIrst she tests the zipper. Then she bends to scrutinize the material. "I am looking to see if there's a big tear," she explains. "Or if it has a button missing. Or if it's dirty."

The shirt passes muster. "I'm zipping it up so it won't fall off the hanger," Nancy states, brown eyes proud of knowledge gained from experience. Then she goes to get another item from the overflowing cart.

Nancy is 70-years-old. This past July, she celebrated her 50th anniversary with Goodwill. Read more about Nancy in the Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle.
