Did you know that Goodwill is one of the greenest organizations on the planet?
By Donating, you keep unwanted clothing and household items out of the landfills, preserving the environment. By donating to Goodwill Niagara, you give those items a second life which helps provide job training, youth and senior programs, housing and support services and more for people in your community.
Goodwill Niagara plays a vital role throughout the Niagara Region in recycling. Our stores collect large volumes of goods, which would otherwise end up in landfills. Last year we kept over six million pounds of usable items out of the landfill. Goodwill Niagara encourages and helps the community to reduce, re-use, and recycle each and every day.
Our Attended Donation Centre at the Humberstone Landfill gives you another chance to donate before going over the scales at Humberstone. The space is graciously provided by the Niagara Region.
Monetary Donations are also accepted at any of our six stores
With your support, we will continue to provide people centered programs and services, maximizing individual self-sufficiency and developing a stronger, more prosperous community. We will also continue to help the environment by recycling.
