Coordinate a pick-up.
You can coordinate a pick-up from your businesses’ donation drive, neighborhood association garage sale, clothing bank, church rummage sale, or if an area college or university, during college student move-out days.
In order to accommodate our business, neighborhood, church and student donors, we operate a free pick up service in and around the Fort Wayne area. Professional drivers will come to your location to take the items you’re donating. They will also gladly provide you with a donation receipt for tax purposes. Goodwill does not do private home pick-ups. Please, contact Goodwill’s Operations Department at 260-478-6346 Ext. 5001 for more information.
