Your Donations Matter

When you donate to Goodwill, you help people to secure jobs for their future.

Wonder how it works? Here is how…

When you donate clothes and/or houshold items to Goodwill, they are inspected, sorted, and priced by our employees and then sold in our stores. Ninety-three cents of every dollar of sales revenue is directed to develop and support training programs for people with disabilities and disadvantages. Program graduates gain new skills to become competitive, find jobs in the community, and live independent and fulfilling lives.
