Why Donate to Goodwill?

When it comes to donating your clothing, electronics, furniture and household items we know you have many options.  Often times deciding which organization will put your goods to best use can be confusing.

Goodwill has been a leader in repurposing donations and creating job opportunities for individuals facing challenges to work since the early 1900s, and we take pride in making sure your donations directly benefit the mission and programs we provide to job seekers in central and coastal Virginia.
