The Golden Goose Thrift Shop is now accepting and picking up clothing donations and would like to share what happens to those donations. 

The Golden Goose Thrift Shop divides 100 percent of its profits solely between Catalina Community Services and SaddleBrooke Community Outreach, two local non-profit charities that provide services to children, families and seniors in the nearby local area.  

 Clothing is the Golden Goose’s second-biggest seller with furniture coming in at number one.  Clothing donations that do not meet certain criteria for sale at the Goose are taken to Catalina Community Services on a daily basis.  On average, one third of clothing donations are saleable at the Goose and two thirds of all clothing donations are sent on to Catalina Community Services (CCS).  Clothing that meets CCS criteria is available for clients at the CCS Clothing Bank.  Clothing that is unsuitable for its clothing bank is sold by CCS to Big Brothers Big Sisters. 

Clothing donations made to the Golden Goose translate into a winning scenario for Catalina Community Services, SaddleBrooke Community Outreach and the customers of the Golden Goose Thrift Shop.  CCS receives clothing for its Clothing Bank clients.  Both CCS and Outreach share in Goose profits to fund their local charitable programs.  And lastly, Golden Goose customers receive discounts on gently used clothing.

Golden Goose would like to thank all of our generous donors and ask that they continue.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
