2016-announcement

Goodwill Easterseals of the Gulf Coast is proud to announce its 22nd Annual collection of 2016 Christmas on the Coast ornaments for Mobile and Pensacola. The limited edition, brass- and gold-plated ornaments have become collector’s items for many Gulf Coast residents. This year’s ornament for the City of Mobile is the Bragg-Mitchell Mansion, and for Pensacola is the Barkley House. If you have had a wedding or other special event at either of these venues, you will want this ornament for your tree. Past years’ ornaments are also available in limited quantities.

Christy Jones-Hudson, Director of Children’s Services for Goodwill Easterseals, accepts a large donation of diapers from United Way of Southwest Alabama on Thursday.  Women United recently held a diaper drive, generating thousands of diapers for local United Way agencies whose participants include families with young children.  Help with this expense will relieve financial burdens for families and result in healthier children in our community!  Thank you, United Way and Women United!
