Goodwill seeking variety of donations

Goodwill Keystone Area is encouraging individuals and families to donate their spring-cleaning items to a local Goodwill donation center.

Each day, Goodwill Keystone Area extends the life of gently used items and reduces the number of materials sent to landfills or incinerators.

Purchases at Goodwill’s retail stores, outlet centers and online auction site give each donated item a new life, with proceeds supporting programs and services that help people with barriers to employment have a renewed opportunity to thrive and flourish.

“Donations are the lifeblood of what we do, and we are in need of items to help us serve the community,” Goodwill Keystone Area Chief Culture Officer Jennifer Diaz said in a news release. “With the spring-cleaning season upon us, you can help reduce waste by giving new life to gently used goods, and support Goodwill’s mission to help individuals with disabilities and other barriers build skills, find jobs and grow their careers.”

Along with donations, shopping at Goodwill retail stores and outlet centers is an opportunity to save big on a variety of donated items while doing your part to save the planet.

Great finds at affordable prices include gently-used clothing, footwear, outerwear, jewelry and accessories, antiques and collectibles, housewares, books, games and other items.

“We encourage customers to bring their reusable shopping bag – or purchase one at any Goodwill Keystone Area store,” Diaz said.

Goodwill Keystone Area has also teamed up with the Dell Reconnect computer recycling program.

Computers are collected at Goodwill donation centers, securely packaged and prepared for Dell’s designated recyclers to pick up and remanufacture.

Goodwill also accepts donated vehicles - cars, SUVs, trucks, RVs, boats, motorcycles and more.

Anyone wanting to donate a vehicle should call 1-866-492-2770 for details.
