Shed Your Winter Coats This Spring and Donate to Goodwill!

Warm weather is here to stay, which means the time has come to shed our winter coats, scarves, and gloves in favor of spring clothing. As you transition your wardrobe from winter to spring, you might be wondering what to do with the articles of clothing that you no longer need. We suggest a solution: donate it all to Goodwill! Here’s why you should donate your winter clothing to Goodwill this spring:

Make some room in your closet

Let’s face it, many of us struggle to keep our closets clean and organized. One way to clear out the clutter is by donating the clothes you no longer need or use to Goodwill. You’ll add much-needed space to your closet and maybe even make some room for new spring clothes. It’s a win-win!

Recycle responsibly

Did you know that donating your used and unwanted clothing to Goodwill is good for the planet? It’s true! When you ditch the dumpster and donate to Goodwill instead, you keep reusable materials out of local landfills. Ohio Valley Goodwill collects and resells donated items in our retail stores at affordable prices, where they’re purchased by people who give them a new life. Donating to Goodwill is the smart way to reduce waste and recycle old items.

Create jobs in your community

Goodwill’s innovative donation-resale model helps to fund life-changing job training programs and employment services for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment. Every time you donate to Ohio Valley Goodwill or shop in one of our retail stores, you’re supporting our mission to put people to work!
