Shop Sustainably and Prepare for the Upcoming School Year

Create Your Style at Goodwill ® This Back-to-School Season


Group of students for back to school

Millions of students are preparing to head back to the classroom this fall, giving new meaning to the term ” back to school.” After more than a year of online classes, many students have changed their styles and are discovering the fashions that suit them best.


In preparation for their return to the classroom, students can visit Goodwill stores to shop for their back-to-school needs. Whether it’s new clothes, shoes or accessories, visit   your local Goodwill store for your one-stop shop for back-to-school essentials. There are 19 Goodwill stores in the Greater Cincinnati community filled with thousands of fashion faves for shoppers to choose from to create their unique styles, all while staying on a budget.


” After a year of upheaval, as many students are going back to school in person, they are also redefining their styles and values,” said Michael Flannery, Public Information Officer, at Ohio Valley Goodwill. ” Students and their families can live more sustainably by shopping at and donating to Goodwill stores.”


While back-to-school shopping, Goodwill encourages people to donate the clothing and other items they no longer need. Last year, Ohio Valley Goodwill received more than 750,000 donations right here in Greater Cincinnati from our generous donors. Through a business model of collecting and selling donated goods and recycling those items that can’t be sold, Ohio Valley Goodwill helps communities extend the life of usable items in environmentally sound ways.


Shopping at Goodwill stores supports employment placement, job training and support services, such as career counseling for people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans. Last year, Goodwill provided services to almost 3000 people and helped 580 to get jobs.


Shoppers can also shop for back-to-school items on shopgoodwill.com ®, an online auction site operated by Goodwill, to find popular items such as calculators, musical instruments, sports equipment and many other items they’ll need for the upcoming school year.
