Are you still missing that one New Year’s resolution — one that you’ll actually stick to this time? Don’t worry! Goodwill NYNJ has just the incentive for starting off the New Year right, with a resolution that will help you — and your neighbors, too.

By clearing out the clutter from your home and donating unwanted items to Goodwill NYNJ you can help fund job training programs and services right in your local community.

“The new year is a great time to resolve to clean out unwanted items from your home,” said Lorie Marrero, founder of the Clutter Diet® and Goodwill spokesperson. “It’s also a time of year when many people set out to find new jobs or career paths. Thanks to Goodwill, many people can make good on their de-cluttering resolutions this year — and it all centers on donations.”

Our forty-one Goodwill stores and three Attended Donation Centers accept donations of unwanted clothing, household goods, electronics, computers and small furniture pieces. We then sell those items in our stores, generating revenue to fund training, vocational and employment services for adults, and mentoring and afterschool programs for children and youth.

In the past year, donations to Goodwill NYNJ allowed 95,000 people to access career, family and financial services. And more than 8,400 people found new jobs thanks to the generosity of Goodwill donors.

Your donations to Goodwill have a direct, positive impact on the lives of people in your community. By donating just two bags of clothing and a working computer you no longer need, you can help fund eight hours of classes for someone searching for a job. Every donation helps.
