Goodwill’s EDGAR® Donation Boxes are used to collect gently used donations including clothing, housewares, shoes, toys, and other non-breakable items that will be sold in Goodwill retail stores. The Donation Box measures 6ft by 6ft and fits easily into one parking space. Donors can drop their items 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in the pull down door, which closes securely after opening. Charitable tax deduction receipts are not available for donations dropped off in the EDGAR® Donation Box.

Why Host a Goodwill Donation Location?
By allowing the placement of a Goodwill Donation Center or Box on your property, you are supporting Goodwill’s mission of helping people and families in our community achieve a better life through work and independence. Donations make Goodwill work – providing funding for critical work and training services that help individuals find and maintain long-term work and an improved standard of living.
Goodwill will ensure that sites and surrounding areas are kept clean and free of debris, with frequent pick-up service. If, for any reason, the owner’s expectations or requirements are not met, the Donation Center or Box will be removed within three days.
