Where Can I Donate?

Retail Stores

Donate when and where it’s convenient for you at one of our 28 retail stores. They accept household items and apparel seven days a week. Hours and types of items accepted vary by location – find your nearest donation location below.

Donation Stations

In our quest for sustainability, we maintain attended donation stations as three landfills throughout the region. They collect sellable items that would otherwise end up as waste. Visit one of three locations in Tacoma, Purdy and University Place.

Donation Bins

Drop in a bin and go is the quickest way to donate your goods.  We maintain a bin with our partner Cheney Stadium in Tacoma which is open five days a week.  Want to place a bin on your property and collect items for Goodwill?  Contact us to learn more.

What Does Goodwill Do With My Donations?

You donations are turned into job training, placement and support services.  Funds generated from the sale of your donations provide FREE training in the greater Tacoma area, along with training facilities in Longview and Yakima. Goodwill offers 20+ programs that help people with barriers to employment reach their fullest potential and obtain a living-wage job. Your donations make a difference!

What Can I Donate?

We accept many household goods and textiles that are in good working or sellable condition. There are things we cannot accept due to damage, recalls, safety and other circumstances, so we created an easy-to-read reference guide below to answer all of your donation questions.
