When you donate to Goodwill Industries of Northern New England, you help the planet and our local communities in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Your donation of gently used household items extends the life of useful goods by keeping them out of the landfill. In addition, the sale of your donations in our 27 retail stores helps to fund our many programs that help people get back to work and lead independent lives.
Donations are accepted at our 27 retail stores, Attended Donation Centers (ADCs) and donation bins throughout northern New England.
In 2010, Goodwill® launched the Donate Movement. Goodwill knows the power donations can have on people and the planet. For more than 100 years, Goodwill has been a pioneer of the “reduce, reuse, repurpose” practice.
Together with our partners, your donated goods have the power to make a difference in people’s lives, strengthen communities and create a healthier environment. When people think twice about what they donate, where they donate and how their donations affect others – and when they donate to reputable organizations – that can have a powerful impact on our world.
Every day, the universal symbol for recycling reminds us to recycle bottles, paper, cans and more. Now, imagine another symbol on clothing, household goods and electronics that reminds you that an item can be donated when you no longer need it.
Goodwill’s vision for this new Donate icon is a universal reminder to ‘recycle’ through responsible donation, helping provide opportunities for others while diverting usable items from landfills.
