You can celebrate #GivingTuesday today by simply cleaning out a closet, bagging up old dishes and clothes and driving them to a Goodwill® near you. To find a local store near you, check out the Goodwill store locator.
Donating to Goodwill® can help provide job training programs, employment placement services and other community-based programs for people with disabilities, lack education or job experience, or face other challenges to finding employment. In fact, Goodwill is the leading nonprofit provider of job training programs and career services in the United States and Canada.
Here is one woman for whom Goodwill made a BIG difference. Watch Candice’s story below.
This is also a great time of year to get charitable tax deductions through your donations. When you are getting out your holiday decorations, use this opportunity to clean out the items you no longer use. By freeing your home of unwanted items, you make a difference in a way that’s a win-win!
You can also take it a step further and host your own Festive Holiday Sweater Party. Check out this fun snapguide by Goodwill!
