Each time you donate to Goodwill, you are supporting the Goodwill mission by helping to create local jobs. All donations stay local, and income from the sale or recycle of donations provides not only wages for employees but also funding for job training and employment programs. Last year, Goodwill Industries of Wayne and Holmes Counties recycled over 1.4 million pounds of material, including cardboard, books, clothes, e-waste, metal, some plastics and tires. Through proactive recycling measures, Goodwill was able to divert over 88% of material from landfills, earning the agency a “Sustainable Business Practice Award” from Goodwill Industries International two years in a row.
