It's simple. When you donate to, give to or shop at Goodwill, you empower job seekers in our community. Your donation makes a difference. 90¢ of every dollar Goodwill spends supports local programs and services that empower people with disadvantages and different abilities to earn and keep employment.
We're ready when you are. There is a donation drop off and a donation center at every Goodwill location making it convenient for you to donate furniture, donate clothes, or donate other items. When you donate, you recycle. Thank YOU for supporting our mission!
