The "Big Baby Baby" singers also each brought personal items to give the shop and pledged to continue making donations in the future.

"We think that it's a good aim to have people donate goods in order to create more jobs for the disabled," the group said in a statement. "We hope that many citizens will donate to Goodwill and utilize it."

After preparing donated items, Woohee, 22, and Subin, 20, assisted with checking out customers, while Serri, 24, and Ga Eun, 22, arranged new items on the shelves and helped out browsing shoppers.
