Goodwill accepts new or gently-used clothing, household items, décor, jewelry, accessories, books, movies, music, furniture, dishes, cookware, toys, and even vehicles.
Tips for donating
- Whenever possible, please bring donations to Goodwill when employees are on duty. Donations dropped off outside of business hours could result in theft.
- Accept a signed donation receipt at the time of your donation, and keep it in your records for tax deduction purposes.
- Give to organizations you know and trust. Fraudulent organizations often modify the names of well-known organizations. Avoid making financial donations to organizations that ask for your credit card number over the telephone or request payment in cash.
Please avoid donating the following:
- Broken or soiled items
- Large appliances
- Chemicals, paint, and butane or propane tanks
- Tires and car batteries
- Computers, computer monitors and televisions
- Items that have been recalled, banned, or don’t meet current safety standards, including the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. For more information, visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Goodwill cannot accept such items for safety reasons and the high cost of disposal. Download a donation guide.
