Upcoming Back-to-School Donation Drives

Your Donations Make a Difference

Before you buy new this back-to-school season, consider cleaning out your closet to help others by donating to Goodwill.

Donations of clothes, shoes, household goods and other items make a difference by connecting people to resources and career training for free. Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont uses the revenue generated from the sale of donations throughout its stores and online to provide job placement and training, certifications and credentials for anyone looking to grow their careers.

Upcoming drives are as follows: 

  • July 28: Ballantyne Northwood Ravin (13840 Ballantyne Corporate Place, Charlotte) – 8 a.m. to noon
  • Aug. 6: Sun City (1353 Del Webb Blvd., Fort Mill), – 8 a.m. to noon
  • Aug. 13: Concord Mills Mall (8111 Concord Mills Blvd, Concord) – noon to 3 p.m.

In partnership with Simon Malls, when you bring your donations to either of the donation drives on August 20 or August 26, you can enter to win a $500 Simon Malls gift card!
