"Goodwill Industries is a nonprofit agency that collects donated items to be resold with the profits going towards helping the disabled. Memphis, Tennessee, uses drop-off points across the city for people to leave their donations. These drop off points are staffed by a Goodwill employee during the day, but at night the donations are unattended. Our investigation uncovered people stealing these donations late at night, often times in large quantities. . . Once we caught the thieves on tape, we confronted them to find out the reason they would steal from the Goodwill. We shared our findings with Goodwill management, who were appalled to learn how widespread the stealing had become. Finally, we showed how these 'Goodwill Thieves' end up hurting people with disabilities, who benefit from the re-sale of the very goods that are being stolen. We also showed viewers how they could keep their donations from ending up in the wrong hands."
