Did you know that the local weather forecast calls for temperatures between 4-20 degrees Fahrenheit for this weekend?

So what to do? We know that you’ll celebrate Valentine’s Day this Sunday. But what about Saturday?

You could go to the movies, a museum, or workout indoors at your gym or local yoga studio. But if you don’t want to venture out, here’s an idea: How about finally de-cluttering your closet and home!

Real Simple Magazine featured Goodwill in its January edition. The article quotes Goodwill® Spokesperson Lorie Marrero, who directs people to “the most reliable places to unload clothes.” The article offers advice on “what to do with unwanted clothes in one easy chart.”

Remember, by organizing your home and donating items to your local Goodwill store,

you can be a job creator!

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. Goodwill NYNJ help residents divert 117 million pounds of unwanted goods from local landfills.

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.

Find the nearest Goodwill store in your community by visiting our website.
