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.
