Albuquerque, NM — Goodwill Industries of New Mexico wants to remind you how vitally important it is to donate your unwanted items before the end of the year. Donations are essential to Goodwill’s ability to offer free programs and services to New Mexicans. Every time you donate to Goodwill, you are helping someone find a job in our community; a homeless veteran find housing; a brain injury patient learn new skills and so much more. What better gift can you give at the end of the year than the gift of stability?
The most urgently needed items are:
• Housewares • Home Décor/Artwork • Sporting Equipment
• Small Kitchen Appliances • Electronics • Furniture
• Tools • Furniture • Jewelry
While there is no question that every individual donation changes lives there are other worthwhile benefits to you including a charitable tax deduction and even more space in your closet or garage! Donating is incredibly easy. Not only does Goodwill have 13 conveniently located donation centers but also offers free home pick-up in specific zip codes. Find a complete list of acceptable donations, locate the Goodwill donation center nearest you or schedule a home pick-up.
