GREEN BAY - People in our area were spring cleaning for a good reason Saturday.
It was all for the donation drive at local Goodwill stores.
Staff at the West Mason Street location in Green Bay opened their doors at 7:30 a.m.
They were looking for items such as clothing, shoes, glass items and more.
People were able to drive up to a drop-off site and donate their items.
Goodwill is a non-profit organization and helps many people in the community.
Staff said a donation drive like this is so important for their organization.
"Spring cleaning is such a big opportunity to clean out your closets and cabinets and get those items down here. It's a big shopping time for us so it helps out our programs and our community so much!" said Kathy Van Mun.
Staff members said they're always looking for donations from the public.
They have to fill their shelves, seven days a week.
