Donate stuff. Create jobs.
There’s never a bad time to clear the clutter out of your home or garage or to do a wardrobe purge. When you donate your stuff to Goodwill, the revenue from the sale of your donations helps fund job training and placement opportunities for people with disabilities and disadvantages directly in your community. That’s cleaning with a purpose.
Goodwill in currently running the “Donate Stuff. Create Jobs” campaign. Thanks to the programs and support services made possible by donations of clothes and household items, more than 261,000 people earned jobs in 2013 – that’s one person finding a job every 27 seconds of every business day. So you’re literally donating your stuff AND helping to create jobs.
Check out this quick PSA:
You can even calculate how much your donation helps your local community by using Goodwill’s Donation Impact Calculator. Simply input the items you’re donating to calculate the number of hours of career counseling, on-the-job training, résumé preparation, financial planning classes, and other services you’ve helped provide someone facing challenges to finding employment.

After you drop off your shirts, shoes, blankets, electronics and other items, we sell them in one of our 3,000 Goodwill stores or on our online auction site, shopgoodwill.com. When someone buys your item, we use that money to fund job training and other services.

Goodwill helps people find jobs, including military and veterans.
I had no idea that there was an online website for Goodwill. I just got back from shopping at Goodwill this afternoon – found some great clothes for my babe. Looks like I have a new vice now if I can browse from my living room. Kudos to you for supporting a good cause, and thanks for the sweepstakes.

I learned that if you donate “stuff” they can use this “stuff” to turn people to do jobs, learn skills and therefore help those in need, and teach them skills, they have classes to help people learn.
