When you drop off your gently used items at Goodwill, you’re doing more than just donating a nice pair of jeans that no longer fit. You’re actually improving the lives of people in your community. Your donation funds the skills training and educational programs for those with barriers to employment. You’re giving someone a chance at a new beginning.
We use the proceeds from the sales of donated goods to provide skills training and employment services to people who need it most. Whether it’s clothing, computers, household items, time or money, your donations help improve others’ lives. For every dollar we earn in stores, 83 cents goes to support our programs and services. Help us succeed together. Our donors are what make Goodwill work. Every piece of clothing, every household item, every piece of furniture supports our mission. It’s more than a donation—it’s a gift to central Iowa. If you’ve donated before, thank you. If you’re considering giving for the first time, let’s help you improve our community.
