For more than a century your donations of gently used items and your purchases in our stores have funded our mission. Goodwill serves approximately 3,500 individuals annually in their quest for gainful employment and supporters like you make continuing our community services possible. By donating your stuff, your dollars, or your time, we can build sustainable and prosperous communities.
