Empowering Individuals, Strengthening Families and Building Stronger Communities

Goodwill Industries of Monocacy Valley is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to ending poverty through the power of work. Goodwill takes a holistic approach to employment by providing job seekers the tools to feel confident, purpose driven and successful. Donating or shopping at Goodwill supports our no-cost career services, which are available to anyone looking for a new job, education or training. Every donation you make helps divert millions of pounds of material from landfills, giving them second life through reuse or recycling. To see what kind of impact your actions have, check out our walk-through below!

How it Works

1

IT STARTS WITH YOUR DONATIONS

When you drop off your items at one of your local Goodwill stores or a convenient donation bin, you help stock our stores with great finds and vintage treasures. This is the first step in helping us tackle the problem of poverty in Maryland!

2

LET THE SHOPPING BEGIN

Looking for a designer dress or cool French press? Thanks to you, our shelves are stocked with great finds! Stop by one of your local Goodwill retail stores to help your community.

3

WHAT WE CAN’T SELL, WE RECYCLE

More than 200 million pounds of material are diverted from local landfills each year through our recycling program.

DONATING & SHOPPING FUNDS OUR CAREER SERVICES

Through the combination of your donations and shopping, we are able to provide no-cost career services throughout Frederick, MD and online at mycareeradvisor.com. From resumé and interview skills development to computer and soft skills training, our services are available to anyone who needs help finding a job.

It All Starts With Your Donations

Thank you for your goodwill!
