Donation Event - Fall Clean Sweep

Donation Event - Fall Clean Sweep

About This Campaign

Long before green came into style, Goodwill pioneered the “reduce, reuse, repurpose” practice in 1902. Today, that philosophy continues as part of our commitment to caring for people and the planet.

With us, donated goods have the power to do GOOD, to make a difference in people’s lives, to strengthen communities, and create a healthier environment. When you donate clothing and other items like books or electronics to Goodwill, your donations are given a “second life.” Items sold in our stores go to a new home and the revenue from the sales fund our employment programs. Items not sold in our stores are donated to partner organizations for their use.

On Saturday September 30th, we are partnering with Wornall Homestead and Country Side Homes Associations to host a donation event, where members of the local community can conveniently donate to Goodwill while learning more about our mission. Volunteers work as Donation Drive Ambassadors who set up for the event, greet donors, accept and sort donations, and pass out donation receipts. Join us!

Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas

Campaign to Support Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas

Goodwill empowers people with disadvantages and different abilities to earn and keep employment through individualized programs and services.  For more than 120 years, Goodwill has provided services in and around Greater Kansas City.  90¢ of every dollar Goodwill spends supports LOCAL programs and services like Quest Academy which gives individuals with barriers to employment a real-life work experience and soft skills to enter the workforce, GoodWORKS Career Resource Centers, which provide free career exploration assistance and is open to the public, and the Career Impact Program that pairs individuals with different abilities with career navigators and career coaches to succeed in the workplace.

Goodwill is a leader in sustainability, annually diverting 15 million pounds of computers, paper, clothing and textiles from area landfills, recovering the value through resale and recycle. As a member of Goodwill Industries International, we are a part of the world's largest and most successful network to provide employment and training services for people with different abilities.
