EUGENE, Ore. -- Goodwill is rounding up and warming up for a good cause starting Sunday.

The store is giving its customers a chance to make a cash donation or to round up their nearest dollar with their purchase.

The goal is to use the money raised to help buy clothes and bedding for residents at the Eugene Mission. This is the first year they are rounding up to warm up.

Executive Assistant for Goodwill, Libby Steffen-Schafermeyer, said they always enjoy helping the community," she said. "We asked if they had some specific needs for the winter and she said warm bedding was really something that they were looking to purchase flannel sheets, pajamas things like that for people to stay warm quilts but she said quilts is really a dying art and so they were looking to purchase some quilts for the beds and they were also looking to provide warm clothing for the people."

The money raised between November 12th and November 18th will be donated to the Eugene Mission.

Steffen-Schafermeyer said they typically raise between $2,000 to $3,000.
