Why donate to Goodwill?
Every time you donate gently used items to any Goodwill donation center in Edmonton, you’re helping individuals with disabilities get jobs. For almost 6 decades, Goodwill has helped connect disabled individuals with employment through funding raised from donations from people just like you. Over 89 cents from every dollar in sales your donations generate goes directly to support programs and services for those with disabilities.
When you donate furniture to Goodwill, it becomes someone else’s treasure they find in one of the Edmonton thrift stores. That revenue generated supports programs like:
Path to Employment. This program supports Edmontonians with disabilities by finding employment or volunteer opportunities. The Path to Employment program helps people figure out their employment goals, prepare them for employment, and even provide job search and employment coaching.
Commercial Services Division. This division is a social enterprise that employs Edmontonians with disabilities through professional assembly and packing services. Employees are those with disabilities able to provide innovative and cost-saving services for businesses through assembly, packaging, labeling, and sorting.
