Summer brings sun, fun and oh so many plans.

One trip to Goodwill will have you set for the busy season ahead. Our stores are stocked with all the items you need to roll with whatever summer sends your way. We found everything featured here at our Urbandale Goodwill!


Swimming tops the list of favorite summer-time activities, and we have swimwear for the entire family. With our pricing, you can afford to grab a few options for everyone.

Tip: Stash extra suits in a beach bag that’s always at the ready.


Rainy days and down time are inevitable, so stocking up on summer reads, games, puzzles and crafts is a smart way to entertain kiddos indoors.

You’ll find everything on your summer reading list at our Buy One, Get One Free Book sale on Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1. Click here for details.


Having an al fresco meal is one of the great glories of summer. Goodwill has great (and cute!) options to make dining in the great outdoors a breeze. Keeping it all stored in a picnic basket keeps everything organized and portable for impromptu picnics in the park.  


Vowing to make twilight tennis a thing? Kiddo trying out baseball for the first time? Need an extra set of clubs to keep in your car? We got you! Our stores have high quality, affordable sporting goods that will allow you and your family to try out new things without a huge investment.

Wherever this summer takes you, Goodwill has everything you need to get from Memorial Day to Labor Day without breaking the bank.
