Goodwill turns your donations into jobs. This year, Goodwill will serve over 10,000 people with disabilities and disadvantages in our communities, place 3,000 in jobs, and keep over 30 million pounds out of unusable donations out of the landfills. Please consider donating your gently used clothing and household items, or making a monetary contribution to Goodwill to benefit our neighbors and a more sustainable future.
Donated goods are sold in 37 area Goodwill stores and online with over 91% of revenue earned going back into the mission to provide job training and placement services to those with disabilities and disadvantages.

Goodwill/Pacific Lutheran University Dorm Drive
For the second year, PLU and Goodwill of the Olympics and Rainier Region partnered
to reduce waste in the landfill, promote recycling and to raise revenue through sale of
dorm donations for job training and placement in Pierce County.
The Goodwill partnership raises revenue for job training and diverts material from
landfills. PLU students and parents donated 400% more to Goodwill this year!
Goodwill hopes to partner with more colleges using this model in the future.
Pacific Lutheran University is only one of 15 colleges across the country to partner with
Goodwill, Keep America Beautiful and the College and University Recycling Coalition to
launch “Give and Go! Move Out 2014,” a national effort in college sustainability living
and job creation. Each year the university recycles more than 70 percent of its waste
stream and has committed to be carbon neutral by 2020.
Goodwill needs financial contributions to help all
the people coming to us seeking job training. Our
clients are low income and face many challenges.
Through generous contributions we’re able to
serve 100% of the most vulnerable job seekers,
providing them the help they need to get a job.
