Goodwill of Western MO & Eastern KS announces partnership with Panda Boxes
KANSAS CITY, MO – Panda Boxes and Goodwill are making eco-friendly moving in and around Kansas City easier and “greener” than ever before. Panda Boxes offers rentable, reusable, and stackable moving boxes, which are more environmentally-friendly than high-energy consuming cardboard boxes. Starting this April, Panda Boxes customers can request to “Give 2 Goodwill” and receive additional boxes at no charge to designate for donations to Goodwill. After the move, Panda Boxes picks up the boxes and delivers the donations to Goodwill.
Goodwill distributes the donations to their local retail stores where proceeds from goods sold support Goodwill’s mission to empower people with disadvantages and different abilities to earn and keep employment through individualized programs and services.
“Moving represents a time in our lives when as a business, family or individual, we’re most open to change. Moving presents an opportunity to shed who or what we were to make room for what we’re becoming. We can make this typically heavy process light-hearted and meaningful when we consider leaving a positive impact on the environment and our community. By renting reusable Panda Boxes and donating what is no longer needed to Goodwill, we’re doing just that. It’s a planetary win you could say,” stated Panda Boxes co-founder Matt Zabielski.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Panda Boxes,” said Stefany Williams, Goodwill of Western MO & Eastern KS President and CEO. “Diverting items from landfills and giving them “new life” at our thrift stores creates a healthier environment and makes a difference in the lives of countless individuals and families. Providing donors with a convenient way to let go of things they no longer need couldn’t get much easier.”
