We would not be able to make the difference that we have without the support of the communities we serve. We want to be transparent and let you know all of the facts that surround donating to your Goodwill.
The cans and can nots of donations. It’s hard to say “no thank you” to a donation when those donations help to fund Goodwill programs. However, we do need to refuse some items for being non-recyclable or containing hazardous materials. Other times, the item must be refused because it costs more to transport, repair or refurbish than it can be sold for in our stores. Our donation attendants are trained to know what we can and cannot accept, and will help guide you to other possibilities for donations we cannot use.
If you are not sure we are happy to help. Just go to our “locations” page and find the closest store and give us a call. We will get you the answers you are looking for. If we think we can use it we will. We will sort through and determine what can be used and if we can, we will recycle the items that can not.
