Thanks to the generosity of our community, we are able to support Albertans with disabilities gain employment while simultaneously diverting waste from local landfills. When you donate to Goodwill, your items do GOOD in our community. With employment programs, and sustainability at the forefront of our minds, we are always looking to partner with out community members through donation drives

[/fusion_flip_box][fusion_flip_box flip_direction="" title_front="How can I participate in the Donations for GOOD program?" title_back="It's Easy!" text_front="Click this box to learn more!" icon="" icon_color="" circle="" circle_color="" circle_border_color="" icon_flip="" icon_rotate="" icon_spin="" image="" image_id="" image_max_width="" background_color_front="" background_image_front="" background_image_id_front="" title_front_color="" text_front_color="" background_color_back="#0069aa" background_image_back="" background_image_id_back="" title_back_color="" text_back_color="" border_size="" border_color="" border_radius="" animation_type="fade" animation_direction="up" animation_speed="0.3" animation_offset=""]

No matter how big or small, you can participate in turning donations into GOOD for your community.

To start, if you have pre-loved items that you no longer use, you can donate them to one of our donation centers. This item will have over a 90% chance of finding a new home, or being repurposed, and therefore diverted from our local landfills. For more information on where to donate, please click here.

You can also participate in the GOOD as a volunteer! We love connecting with our community and sharing what we do. If you have time to spare, and want to lend a helping hand-up, consider volunteering for GOOD. To learn more about our volunteer programs, please click here.

Finally, if you are a school, a business, a building manager, a community organizer, or a mover & shaker looking to organize a large scale cleanout. Think about hosting a Goodwill donation drive! For more information on donation drive, please read below!

Why Host a Goodwill Donation Drive?

There are two main types of donation drives. They can be classified as 'big bin events' and 'spring cleaning events'.

Big bin events

are typically held by communities, who hire a waste service to drop off large bins for residents to throw away large household waste. At these events, Goodwill sets up a station to receive any items that are too good for the landfill, but are no longer useful to the resident. Having Goodwill at big bin events helps divert thousands of pounds of goods from the landfill.

Spring cleaning events

 are typically held by apartment complexes or business'. At these events, Goodwill drops off bins at the beginning of the event and collects the bins by the end of the event (or sooner if they fill up fast!). This is a great way to complete a spring cleaning, because you know that if the items are re-sold, 89% of that revenue will go back towards supporting Albertans with disabilities find and gain meaningful employment.

Have an idea for a donation drive that's not outlined here?

We'd love to hear about it! Innovation drives our core purpose at Goodwill, so please fill out the form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible!

As a not-for-profit social enterprise, our mission is to support Albertans with disabilities gain meaningful employment. In addition to that, we have award winning sustainability practices, so the items donated at your event won't end up in a landfill.

We don't charge any fees for bin drop off, or for our attendance at your donation drive!  We value connecting with our community members, so we view donation drives as win win win win. A win for Goodwill, a win for your organization, a win for local landfills, and a win for Albertans with disabilities.
