“Everyone from my fellow veterans to my family and friends were amazed that Goodwill held my position for me for almost an entire year while I served,” Bridget says. “As a veteran, it’s a good feeling to know that my employer is behind me supporting my military duty and helping me re-enter the workforce. I feel happy, relaxed, and refreshed to be here.”
Every Goodwill success story begins with a donation. When you donate to Goodwill, you are doing more than just giving a second life to your gently-used items. You are changing someone’s life by creating jobs right here in our community.
Goodwill receives more than 1,000,000 donations each year thanks to donors like you. Revenue generated from the sale of your donated items in our retail stores funds valuable employment training and job placement services for Carolina residents. Your impact doesn’t end there — the environment also benefits when you choose to donate instead of dump. Each year, your Goodwill diverts more than two million pounds of materials, including environmentally-hazardous electronic waste, from local landfills.
Goodwill makes donating quick and easy. Just drop off your items at one of our nearby Stores, Attended Donation Centers, or Mini Donation Centers, or schedule a convenient home pickup. It is our goal to honor your generosity with a simple and hassle-free donation process.
Want to know just how your donations change lives? After you drop off your items at Goodwill, use our Donation Impact Calculator to calculate the number of hours of career counseling, on-the-job training, résumé preparation and other services you’ve helped provide.
