Goodwill Industries of New Mexico is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit. In 2019, we were able to serve over 20,000 New Mexicans because the donation volume was very healthy. But right now we need help! Our ability to reach another 20,000 New Mexicans with free programs and services, in 2020, is entirely dependent on the community’s response to this donation plea. The need is urgent. The best time for donating is today through the end of January.
What happens to these donations? They fund our free programs and services. A single bag of donations can fund one hour of free job skills training or job placement assistance to an unemployed New Mexican! Donors are truly making a tremendous contribution to the community. And it’s why we say, “Every donation changes lives!”
What type of items can be donated?
• Clothing/Shoes • Handbags/Accessories • Holiday decorations
• Jewelry • Furniture • E-waste
• Home Décor/Artwork • Housewares/Linens • Exercise equipment
• Small Kitchen Appliances • Electronics • Toys
Goodwill has been serving New Mexicans for 78 years and currently offers nine free programs and services. 2020 indicators point to an increased need for veteran housing, specialized social services, skills training, and job placement for New Mexicans. This anticipated need is the motivation behind our donation plea.
Goodwill makes donating as easy as possible by offering home pick-up across the metro and Rio Rancho, and 15 donation centers across the state. To find out if you are in a home-pickup zone or to locate the Goodwill donation center nearest to you visit www.goodwillnm.org.
Please be one of the generous donors who respond to this urgent plea!
