Donate unwanted items to Goodwill® and get your home organized for 2014
Each new year, many people make a resolution to get better organized at home. Make 2014 the year you finally clear the clutter with Goodwill’s help. As you’re cleaning out your garage and closets, save gently used items and donate them to one of the more than 29 Goodwill® locations in the Greater Cincinnati area. Goodwill sells those items in its stores, and the revenue funds job-training programs and employment services for people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans in our community.
All of Goodwill’s Greater Cincinnati locations accept donations of gently used clothing, housewares, electronics, computers and accessories, and furniture. Most locations also accept donations of cars, boats and other vehicles.
“It feels good to start the year with no clutter at home, free of the stress of dealing with items that are no longer needed,” said Lorie Marrero, founder of the Clutter Diet® and Goodwill spokesperson. “Goodwill provides valuable community services from the items you no longer need. Donating is a win–win for donors and the thousands of people Goodwill helps each year.”
Goodwill donors can calculate the positive impact of their donation with the Donation Impact Calculator. Simply choose your donation from the drop-down menu, and the calculator will display the impact of your donation on the community. For example, a donation of one bag of clothes provides one hour of a skill training program or resume preparation assistance to someone who is looking for work and building a career.
“Last year, almost 700,000 donors gave their gently used items to Goodwill,” said Joseph Byrum, president and CEO of Ohio Valley Goodwill. “Their generosity helped Goodwill provide critical job training services to almost 3000 people with disabilities, our nation’s veterans, and others facing challenges to finding employment.”
