Workers put the finishing touches on the parking lot outside the new Goodwill Donation Center at the Hardeman Avenue/Forsyth Street split on the west side of Interstate 75 in Macon on Friday. The official opening for the center is Monday. To make a donation, you don't even have to get out your car. Just drive up, ring the gas station style bell and workers will get your goods. "When the bell rings, I'm comin' at you," said worker Willie Brown.

The 1,400-square-foot center will be staffed with full- and part-time employees to accept donations of clothing, housewares, electronics and other items from the public, according to a news release. The collected items will be sold in Goodwill stores with the revenue used to fund job-training programs for people in Middle Georgia.

The grand opening is scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday.
