Community Partners

Featured Partners

Collaboration is paramount to the work Goodwill does in this community.  Our community partners have made significant contributions of time, donations or other services to advance Goodwill’s mission. We’re proud to celebrate and recognize their impact.

 Panda Box logo Panda Box logo

We’re thrilled to announce that Panda Boxes and Goodwill are making eco-friendly moving in and around Kansas City easier and “greener” than ever before. Starting April 2016, Panda Boxes customers can request to “Give 2 Goodwill" and receive 2 or more extra boxes at no charge to designate for donations to Goodwill. After the move, Panda Boxes picks up the boxes and delivers the donations to Goodwill.  Goodwill then distributes the donations to their local retail stores where proceeds from goods sold support Goodwill’s mission

Goodwill donors are generous. In fact, often when people donate their clothing, furniture, and household goods to Goodwill thrift stores, they also ask to donate food and toiletries. Realizing Goodwill could help feed the local community Goodwill formed a partnership with Harvesters-The Community Food Network. Now, donors and shoppers can donate to Harvesters and Goodwill at the same time by using Harvesters barrels at area Goodwill locations. Through this collaboration, we’re giving old things new life, filling Harvesters Food Pantries, and helping individuals in our local community thrive as a whole.

Host a Donation Drive

Your donations make it possible for Goodwill to achieve its mission.  Your donations are sold locally in Goodwill thrift stores.  All 100% the proceeds from the sales of these donated goods support the mission of empowering people with disadvantages and different abilities to earn and keep employment. Plus, Goodwill works tirelessly to keep items from ending up in landfills. Last year, Goodwill was able to find new uses for 15 million of pounds of unwanted stuff! 

If your city, neighborhood, school, business or group would like to support Goodwill's work in this community by hosting a donation drive, contact 

Thank you to these organizations that hosted donation drives in the past year!
