OneMain Financial will provide area residents and customers the opportunity to support their local community during its Customer Appreciation Days through the end of May.

The local OneMain Financial branch, 2009 W. 15th St., is collecting clothing donations to help support the mission of Goodwill Industries. Local donations will benefit the Washington Goodwill.

“Sharing a likeminded vision with Goodwill Industries, OneMain Financial is helping to make the neighborhoods where we do business better places to live and work,” said Mary McDowell, president and CEO of CitiFinancial North America and OneMain Financial. “We have a strong tradition of supporting local organizations that help those in need, and we are excited area residents will be joining us in this effort during our Customer Appreciation Days.”

“Goodwill’s partnership with OneMain Financial will provide a meaningful opportunity to reach its millions of employees and customers, and not only to increase donations, but to engage a new audience of donors and shoppers,” said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. “The revenue from the sale of the donations will enable Goodwill to design job training programs that meet the specific needs of job seekers in the communities where OneMain Financial branches are located.”
