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 in-store kiosk or the Consumer Products Safety Commission’s website at www.recalls.gov.
Goodwill Donation Bins
In an effort to make donating items to Goodwill more convenient for our donors, 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).
