Donate to Goodwill

We accept donations of clothing, shoes, housewares, décor, electronics, sporting goods and other quality items. Seasonal items like holiday decorations and Halloween costumes are also welcome.

Your donations are sold locally in our Minnesota and western Wisconsin Goodwill stores. You support local job training and placement programs that eliminate barriers to work and independence.
