Show Us Your Goodwill Contest


We Need Your Stuff. Pronto.

Goodwill needs your donations. Whether it’s your Pink Polka Dotted Poncho or your Little Lime Lamp, Goodwill is in need of new donations to continue their mission of creating new jobs right here in Arizona.

What’s better than clearing out your no longer needed stuff to help a non-profit in need?

How about possibly winning a $50 gift card by posting your donation on social media!?

Win When You Donate!

During the month of February, we want to see your best donations that you bring to our drop off locations. Show us YOUR Goodwill by posting a photo of the items that you are donating to Goodwill of Central Arizona with #DonateGoodwill and be entered to win a $50 gift card!

Your Donations Matter

When we sell the items you donate—whether it’s shirts, hats, furniture or dishware—we put 90 cents of every dollar into job and skills training at our 21 career centers. Last year, our efforts put more than 44,000 people to work in the community!
Donate your old clothing and household goods—and other stuff—to Goodwill today. And give someone a new start in life.

Goodwill Donation Centers

All Goodwill of Central Arizona retail stores serve as donation centers, as well as standalone express donation centers totaling over 70 locations to drop off your stuff.

Home Pickup

Don’t have time to bring it to one of our donation centers, or can’t fit it in your car? Our Home Pickup service is available by just scheduling an appointment.
Just call our Home Pickup Line at 602-513-8444. Or schedule one online.  Questions? Email

48 Hour Priority Pickup Service

Goodwill has partnered with College Hunks Hauling Junk, to help you when you need oversized items or a large quantity of various items recycled or disposed of. Don’t worry about the items themselves, as Goodwill can pick out the items that College Hunks brings to our pickup center while the rest of the items are disposed of by them.

College Hunks are fully licensed, bonded and insured so they can go anywhere on your property to haul out any items you no longer want. You also will still receive a tax-deductible receipt for the items that are picked up. Schedule your College Hunks pickup & delivery by calling 1-800-586-5872.
