Clothing & Goods
Goodwill Columbus accepts donations of gently-used clothing, furniture, household items, computers and electronics for resale in our six retail stores. Proceeds from your donation are used to provide services to people with developmental disabilities and other barriers.
Donations may be made at any of our six retail locations or at one of our 14 Attended Donation Centers in Franklin County. Revenue generated from the sale of items in our stores is put back into rehabilitation and job training for individuals with disabilities and other barriers.
But what if you have a torn or soiled shirt that you think Goodwill may not be able to use? Donate it. What about a cookie sheet with burn marks? Donate it. Or just one shoe, but not a pair? Donate it. If an item cannot be used in our retail stores, it will be recycled. Be assured that glass, wood, plastic, ceramic, and decorative items such as figurines, knick-knacks are not thorwn away as they have viable recyclable value. Every effort is made to recycle items that are not sold in our stores, so that they do not end up in landfills.
PLEASE NOTE THAT AFTER DECEMBER 9, 2013, WE WILL NO LONGER ACCEPT TELEVISIONS.
For your convenience, we also have a Valuation Guide for Goodwill Donors to help if you decide to claim your donations on your tax return.
