Do your closets look like this? Or even worse!? Cut the clutter anxiety by donating your used clothing and shoes to Goodwill. 

When you give to Goodwill, you create training and employment opportunities for those in your community who need assistance getting back to work!

Helping people and families achieve better lives through work and independence.
Introduction
Goodwill Industries of the Valleys, a United Way organization headquartered in Roanoke, serves 31 counties and 13 cities in the Shenandoah Valley, Central, and Southwest Virginia. Its mission is to help people and families in our community achieve a better life through work and independence. In 2015, Goodwill served 45,092 youth, adults, and seniors who needed assistance getting back to work and gaining greater independence, placed 4,261 people into jobs in our community, and helped individuals attain 837 industry recognized credentials that will allow them to be more competitive in their job search and to find higher paying employment.

Whether a person needs a gentle push to help them along their road to independence, or a guiding hand through the entire process, Goodwill programs are designed to meet the needs of all who need help. Individuals eligible for assistance include those with mental and physical disabilities, at risk youth, disadvantaged adults on a low income, and income eligible seniors struggling to re-enter the workforce.

Goodwill operates 37 retail stores and 2 outlet stores, which rely on the generosity of the communities for donations of clothing and household goods. All revenues from the stores support the mission of Goodwill Industries of the Valleys.
