Goodwill values your generous donations.

Retail sales from your donated items allow us to continue empowering thousands of people through employment every year. We gratefully accept everything from clothing, shoes and accessories to small household appliances and furniture, electronics, books, fine china, jewelry, art and other collectibles in good or gently used condition.

Donors get extra love for pre-sorting their items before drop-off – clothing in one bag, shoes in another, household goods in a third, etc. – since this helps keep our operating costs low and serve more people in need.
