Helping hands from Goodwill

Where & What to Donate

Your Donations Help Fund the Goodwill Mission

“Give to Goodwill what you would give to a friend.”

Goodwill accepts donations of gently used clothing, household items and more at our donation centers conveniently located at the front, side or rear of our store and donation center locations. Search your nearest store and donation center here. The list below is to be used as a guideline. There are many items we can sell that are not on the list. And, see our list of electronic items we can and cannot accept.

Items Goodwill Cannot Accept

The cost of disposing certain items takes away from funds we invest in our employment and training programs. We appreciate your donations and your help in keeping unsafe, broken or non-working items out of our stores by not donating items that do not meet current safety standards due to recalls or bans.

If your item is not on the list and you are unsure if Goodwill can accept your item, it is best to call ahead to discuss your donation with a manager before heading our way.

Consumer Product Safety

Goodwill makes every effort to comply with governmental recall notices regarding consumer products. Goodwill does not independently test for lead or other contaminants in consumer products. All Goodwill merchandise is sold “as-is” with all faults. For recall notices, visit the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website at

Goodwill Donation Bins

Donate Money

In an effort to make donating items to Goodwill more convenient, there are donation bins at a few of our store locations and around the community throughout central and southeastern Pennsylvania. If you see our bins out in the community, you may donate with confidence knowing that your donation to Goodwill helps local community members thrive and flourish. 

For more information please contact the store nearest you, or call 800.432.GIVE (4483).
