HOW TO DONATE

Donating to Goodwill is easy. Gather the gently used items in your home, garage and at work that you no longer need or use. Next, load these items in your vehicle and find your nearest Goodwill location. Pull up, pop your trunk and Goodwill will unload your items. You will receive a receipt for a charitable tax donation. It’s that easy!

WHERE TO DONATE

Donations can be taken to any of our 35 stores or 8 attended donations centers across the state. Attendants will be standing by, ready to help you unload your car. A list of locations where you can drop off your donated items can be found here.

WHY DONATE

Donations are the lifeblood of our organization. Once you make a donation, it circulates through what we at Goodwill call the donation cycle. Donations help people and the environment. Good quality clothing, furniture and items like books, toys and dishes, stay in-use and out of landfills. Donated items are sorted and processed for resale in Goodwill retail stores, providing an affordable shopping alternative for the community. 96% of the revenue generated through our stores goes toward funding our mission of changing lives through education, training and employment. When job seekers receive the proper training and counseling through Goodwill’s Career Services Department, finding a job becomes easier. Your donations have a real impact on real people in your community!

Take Moriah for instance. Life was rocky for Moriah. As a child, she was adopted twice, and as an adult, she was in an abusive relationship for 13 years. She first walked into Goodwill Industries of Arkansas two years ago, to receive career services, but she moved back to Oregon where she found herself sleeping on beaches and doing drugs for the first time. Last year, she decided to change her life. She stopped using drugs and moved back to Arkansas. She visited Goodwill’s Career Center in Springdale and received help on her resume, job search and Supplemental & Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Moriah said, “Goodwill gave me hope to get back on my feet.” Today, she works at a Health and Rehab facility in Springdale. She recently took and passed the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) test and she is looking forward to taking her upcoming skills test!
