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!
