Goodwill turns your donations into jobs!
Haven’t worn that sweater in a few years? Did you upgrade your TV and now the old one is collecting dust in the garage? Do you have a bin full of toys that the kids have outgrown? Give them a new life – donate them to Goodwill! Goodwill turns your donations into jobs through our job training and support services programs. That sweater you donate will help provide a budding chef a seat in our culinary training program, preparing them for a job in a local restaurant. All of our programs are provided at no charge to participants because of your donations. YOUR donations change lives.
Last year, Goodwill served nearly 7,000 people with barriers to employment in our communities, placed more than 600 people in jobs, and kept 87 million pounds of household donations out of the landfills through reselling, recycling & re-purposing.

Recent federal legislation allows for tax deductions of donated clothing and household goods in good, used condition or better. The contribution of a single item of clothing or a household item for which a deduction of more than $500 is claimed on a taxpayer return may require a qualified appraisal.Please visit the IRS website to get tax information in regard to your donated goods.

|ELECTRONICS RECYCLING We accept electronics donations and if they are in good working condition, they will be put out on to the sales floor. If they no longer work – we can recycle them. We have partnered with Ecycle Washington to help keep electronics and toxic materials out of our landfills. We are currently able to accept non-working computers, TVs, DVD and CD players for recycle. We no longer accept printers.
