When you donate to Goodwill, your clothing, kitchenware, appliances, furniture, toys or other household goods help provide jobs and free job training services for thousands of Tennesseans each year.
Each donated item is sorted, priced and processed for the sales floor by a Goodwill employee — many of whom sought Goodwill’s help to overcome a disability or other barrier to employment.
Revenue generated through the sale of donated items supports Goodwill’s community-based employment and training programs. Thanks to you, each year thousands of people across Middle and West Tennessee receive free assistance in obtaining a job, a better job or a career.
The bottom line? When you donate to Goodwill, you invest in the futures of people across your community.

We ask that all donated items be in working order and in good, clean condition since Goodwill cannot repair or refurbish donated items.
