    Donors are encouraged to review the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalls and announcements before donating. Items that have been recalled cannot be donated to or sold by Goodwill.

    Donations may be dropped at any of our locations during operating hours and Goodwill will provide a receipt stating we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization through our automated donation kiosk. If you are interested in scheduling a home pick up, learn more by clicking here.

    Unacceptable Items

    It’s hard to say “no thank you” to a donation. However, if an item is not in clean, saleable condition, the costs of handling and disposal pulls funds that would otherwise support our workforce development programs. For further clarification, please contact a retail store manager and they will help guide you to other possibilities for donations we cannot accept, such as your local recycling center.

    Unfortunately, we cannot accept certain items including but not limited to:

    • Broken, torn, stained, odorous furniture – Goodwill does not repair or clean items and can only offer clean, useable items for sale in the stores.
    • Hazardous materials – Kerosene, gas, paint or any chemicals.
    • Building materials – Carpets, shutters, doors, windows, toilets, lumber, concrete, bricks, stones.
    • Broken appliances or items that do not work – TVs, microwave ovens, copy machines.
