Donation Centers

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

Goodwill Stores have donation centers on the front, side or rear of each location. We accepts donations of gently used clothing and household items. Several locations also accept furniture, it is best to call ahead for furniture and large donations to ensure your local Goodwill can accept your large items before heading to the donation center.

PLEASE NOTE: Goodwill does not offer pick-up service, all items must be brought to our donation centers, thank you!

What Not To Donate

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. As a result of the new e-waste recycling law in Pennsylvania, Goodwill has received a high-volume of TVs that we are unable to sell or that we can't recycle. We DO accept computers, monitors, etc. We work with Dell Reconnect in recycling computers. We are working to find a vendor that will help us recycle TVs. Until then, we are sorry that we can't take your TV donation.

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 in-store kiosk or the Consumer Products Safety Commission’s website at www.recalls.gov.

Goodwill Donation Bins

Donate Money

In an effort to make donating clothing to Goodwill more convenient for our donors, we have begun placing Donation Bins at a few of our Store locations and around the community throughout central and southeast 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 with barriers to independence. 


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