Goodwill @ Work

Community workplace for those with a disability

Goodwill @ Work is composed of micro social enterprises that focus on creating opportunity for people with disabilities, training, and sustainability. These enterprises are based out of the AMAZING Edmonton Impact Centre and includes: Commercial Services, Repair For GOOD and the Assembly of products.

Cleaning Cloths

Our flagship product, the Cleaning Cloths, are made from towels and t-shirts that haven’t been able to find a second home through Goodwill’s retail stores. These items are transformed by the fantastic Commercial Services team into a new product that can be used in a variety of ways. Thanks to this program, every year Goodwill diverts over 14,000 kilograms of towels and t-shirts from local landfills. This magnificent product can be found at our retail stores our at Hughes Carwash and Northern Co-op retailers.

Repair For GOOD

Our sustainability footprint continues to grow with our partnership with ATB Financial and the Repair for Good program. This program is where we have the ability to repair and upcycle un-usable furniture and re-selling the item at an affordable price to our customers. Our community of partners and customers have given us tremendous support in donating supplies, referring volunteers, and buying the beautiful pieces we’ve upcycled.
