Change Lives When You Donate to Goodwill This Spring

Spring is a time for fresh starts and new beginnings. For most of us, the change of seasons brings motivation to clean and organize our living spaces. But did you know that the opportunity to spring clean your home is also an opportunity to help others? When you donate your unused or unwanted items to Ohio Valley Goodwill, you’re not only decluttering your home, but you’re also making a big difference for your community!

Your donations of gently-used clothing and household goods go a long way in helping those in need. Even if your possessions have outlived their usefulness to you, they can still be used and enjoyed by someone else. When you donate to Goodwill, your items are resold at everyday low prices in our retail stores. It’s a way to recycle responsibly and provide your neighbors with access to affordable goods.

But wait…there’s more! The funds raised from the sale of donated goods in Ohio Valley Goodwill’s stores help fund job training and employment services for people facing barriers to employment, including individuals with disabilities and veterans. The money generated from just one donated item can make a significant impact in the lives of people living in your community, giving them independence, self-confidence, and a better quality of life.

Through the help of community members like you, Ohio Valley Goodwill is able to provide thousands of people with supportive programs and services they need to find, obtain and maintain community employment in the Greater Cincinnati area each year. Read about the latest success stories from individuals who achieved employment success with help from Ohio Valley Goodwill.
