A Pitch for People & Planet
Join the cause to support Goodwill San Francisco Bay's initiatives by texting SFGOODWILL to 44321. So we can continue to create second chances for people and the planet.
We divert over 50 million pounds of waste per year by promoting textile and electronics reuse, E-truck fleet use, and green job creation. With your donation, we can continue our efforts to redirect waste and create opportunities for job training and education, all while working towards a greener, more equitable future.
Join the Green Team: Bring Your E-Waste and Cheer on the A's!
In celebration of Earth Day, we are thrilled to announce our second annual E-Waste drive in partnership with the Oakland A’s. On Saturday, April 29th at RingCentral Coliseum in Oakland, watch your hometown heroes face off against the Cincinnati Reds. Bring your unwanted electronics and enjoy a day at the ballpark!
For every ticket purchased using the link below, Goodwill San Francisco Bay will receive $5, which will fund programs that help eliminate barriers to work for people who need a second chance, like veterans, people who were formally incarcerated, or folks experiencing homelessness.
We will be stationed outside Gates C & D and on the west end of the BART ramp from 11:00 AM until the end of the 3rd inning. We will be accepting e-waste donations, ranging from computers to cameras. To protect donors' privacy, all items are wiped of personal information before resale or recycling. As a “thank you” for your donations, you'll receive ticket vouchers for an upcoming ballgame. Please click the link below for a detailed list of what we will accept and ticket voucher information.
If you arrive in time, you’ll catch our Board Chair, Eric Sippel, taking the mound to throw out the first pitch.
Finally, tune in to the A’s pre-game radio show with Vince Cotroneo and listen to an exclusive interview with Goodwill San Francisco Bay President and CEO William Rogers. The interview will also be featured on A’s Cast, their official podcast.
Strike Out Barriers to Work: Join Us at the Giants Game
Our friends at the San Francisco Giants have generously offered us the chance to be their community partner on April 10th, when they face the Los Angeles Dodgers at 6:45 PM. Goodwill SF Bay will be stationed on the Promenade level at the Community Clubhouse through the 4th inning. Stop by to say hi and learn more about our mission and services.
