The recent winter weather has caused Goodwill officials to see a drop in donations.

The non-profit reported a decline in donations by 14% in January compared to this time last year.

Their retail sales were also affected by the storm because customers could not get out and shop, which forced some of the locations to temporarily close.

Those stores were back open Wednesday and Goodwill said it hoped that its generous donors will help make up for those lost days during the storm.
