TULSA -

Tulsa's Goodwill locations are seeing a surge in donations, partially due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Goodwill stores are open across the area, and Goodwill said they are seeing an increase in donations right now.

Goodwill's Director of Community Relations, Nancy Webster, says this will taper down at some point, but she assumes some people are bored at home and cleaning out their closets.

While it does look overwhelming, she says they are managing at this point in time.

That's not to say to not donate any items you have at this time, they say they can handle additional donations right now.

Goodwill says the summer months are usually busy when it comes to donations, but the COVID-19 pandemic seems to also be adding to their inventory.

Remember--- Goodwill resells most of the items they receive.

You can shop at their locations in Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Owasso, Glenpool, Bartlesville, Claremore, or McAlester.

You can even shop online.
