Rat City RollergirlsThis year marks the second year that Seattle Goodwill is a proud sponsor of Rat City Rollergirls, Seattle’s premiere all-female, flat-track roller derby league. The skaters are divided among four home teams: Derby Liberation Front, Grave Danger, Sockit Wenches, and Throttle Rockets.

Two of the skaters from Derby Liberation Front (DLF) recently stopped by Seattle Goodwill on Dearborn street and talked about their own dedication to thrift shopping at Goodwill.

“My whole house is from Goodwill. I used to work at the Lynnwood Goodwill and it was one of my favorite jobs. I still go to Goodwill about once a week,” said Anna Ivarra, also known as Punk’n Pie, (#57). Shopping at Goodwill with one of her favorite activities to do with her mom. One of her most treasured finds came from the Marysville Goodwill - she was able to purchase the same dish set her grandmother had for only $40.

"My day job is close by so I come to Goodwill at lunch all the time," said Julie Loughran, who goes by Julie Ann Bruise (#16 going on 17) while skating. She is a big fan of board games that she purchases from Goodwill.
