For many of us, Christmas day is a wonderful time filled with new things to bring joy and comfort into our lives… then the day after Christmas is filled with scratching our heads trying to figure out where to put it all. Instead of throwing out your older things you don’t need anymore, bring them by your local Goodwill so that another family in need may have the opportunity to continue to enjoy it for years to come.
How Does Contributing to Goodwill Make an Impact?
While many charitable organizations focus on handouts, Goodwill focuses your donations on hand-ups. Your donations don’t just cloth the poor; they fund programs that help people with disabilities or other barriers to improve their economic self-sufficiency by providing training, education, support services, and employment. By working to habilitate those in need, we turn your one-time donations into gifts that help people for the rest of their lives.
• Shop Goodwill Retail Thrift Stores. • Donate clothing and household items. • Make a monetary donation. • Hire a Goodwill graduate. • Partner with Goodwill’s contract services department. • Remember Goodwill with a bequest your will.
