"The Tuscaloosa community has been so welcoming and supportive of our mission, and we are thrilled to be expanding here," said Amanda Fort, VP of Organization Development and Mission Advancement. "We anticipate this new store and donation site to open in early 2022."

The event will take place Tuesday December 21 and Wednesday December 22 at the future site of the Tuscaloosa store: 1140 Veterans Memorial Parkway. No appointments are necessary.

"We encourage anyone in need of work to come and see what we're all about," Ford said. "Our mission is rooted in providing opportunities and employment to all Alabamians, especially those overcoming various barriers to employment."
