What Can I Donate?

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 and accessories in another; household items in a third; electrical and e-waste in another; books get their own bag, too. If you have jewelry, it’s helpful to put it in a small, individual bag so nothing gets lost.  This helps keep our operating costs low and serves more people in need. Thank you in advance for your generosity and donations.
