Goodwill to open additional donation site in Ballard

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on December 27th, 2013

Goodwill is set to open an additional donation site in Ballard at Our Redeemers Lutheran Church (2400 NW 85th) this Sunday, November 29. The new donation site will be open seven days a week and provides another opportunity for locals to give back to the community.

The new site will be equipped to accept donations of all quality reusable clothing, household items, electronics (including televisions and computer monitors measuring 19 inches or less), and desktop computers and laptops. Furniture, appliances or other items that are larger than an end table will not be able to be donated at this site.

If you are considering making a donation to Goodwill now is the perfect time to lower your tax bill, while at the same time (most importantly) helping others. Clothing, books, shoes, toys, electronics, and furniture are amongst some of the items that are in high demand at Goodwill this year. Remember that your donations are tax-deductible as Goodwill is a nonprofit organization and every donor can receive a tax receipt.

Your donations are going towards creating a brighter future for people in our community. “Goodwill sells your donations in its 23 nonprofit retail thrift stores, located throughout the central and northern Puget Sound region and uses the net proceeds to offer free classes. The ten Goodwill Job Training and Education Centers are lifelines to people who need job skills to find work,” says Goodwill spokesperson Katherine Boury.

If you need to dispose of your electronics in an eco-friendly way simple bring your old televisions, computers, monitors and laptops to Goodwill. Goodwill will safely recycle the items in conjunction with the successful E-Cycle Washington.

Dig deep this holiday season and give back to those who are in need.
