Donating to Goodwill is an easy and convenient way to rid your house of that extra clutter while at the same time providing someone in the community with something they need at a great price and helping someone else find meaningful employment.
While we appreciate all donations we do ask that you take the time to sort your donations before bringing them to one of our Donation Centre locations, to remove any items that we cannot re-sell. Sorting out and disposing of items we cannot sell takes time and resources away from fulfilling our mission.
