HOW YOUR DONATIONS DO GOOD
We’ll sell the donations we receive from this special event in our retail stores and online, and use the revenue to fund career training courses, job search support, family stability services and more – all of which we offer free of charge to thousands of people in our community each year. Last year, your donations and purchases allowed us to help more than 7,000 people in our community advance their careers and improve their lives.
Plus, when you donate to Goodwill, you’re helping more than our community – you’re helping our planet too! More than 17 million donated items were given a second life through your local Goodwill just last year.
