      More shoppers turning to Goodwill in bad economy

      Every day, millions of people clean out their closets, attics and garages.

      Instead of throwing out the things you no longer need, why not give them to Goodwill.

      Goodwill representative Marjorie Boudreaux says their Valley stores are seeing an increase in sales, during these tough economic times.
