Cleaning out your closet or clearing up clutter around your home? Take your gently loved items to Goodwill!

There’s a common misconception that we pocket the proceeds made off your donated goods, but that simply is not true. In fact, nearly 90 cents of every dollar generated at our 66 retail stores are funneled into our career services efforts. The same efforts that affect the lives of tens of thousands of individuals each year.

In addition, we help divert nearly 50 million pounds of goods from landfills annually, which helps save the environment. We do this by selling or recycling your unwanted items.

Learn more about why you should donate to Goodwill Industries of Kentucky from our Community Engagement Coordinator Ben Haydon, who recently joined LEX18 to discuss Goodwill resolutions, what to donate and how your gently loved items benefit the communities around you.
