Your donations make a difference!

When you donate to Goodwill, you’ve taken the opportunity to become a job creator and make a significant difference in the lives of people with disabilities and/or barriers to employment living in our community.

We put your donations to work – funding skills training programs, employment placement services and jobs for people with disabilities, those who lack education or job experience, ex-offenders and others facing challenges to finding employment.

Consider the many ways you can support Goodwill’s Mission through donations:

  • Corporate donations of overstock, closeout and returns from area merchants.
  • Round-up your change at the checkout counter when shopping in Goodwill’s stores.
  • Make a financial contribution.
Donate when and where it’s convenient at our Goodwill stores in northeast Indiana. Unloading help is available and donation receipts are furnished. Goodwill accepts household items and apparel seven days a week.
