This new location is an opportunity for Goodwill to support community initiatives within St. Albert, including expanding our efforts in environmental stewardship.
Goodwill not only diverts 90% of waste from landfills in the Edmonton region annually, but we find a way to give back, as seen through our partnership with the Alberta Reads Network.

Opening up a new Goodwill thrift store and donation centre in St. Albert is a proud moment for our organization.
