- Exact change
- Credit or debit cards
- Or "round-up" to the next dollar to support the Goodwill Mission.
When you round-up, you further help changes the lives of those we serve by helping us provide training, employment and supportive services for people with disabilities or disadvantages who seek greater independence.
In the video above, you'll meet Robert, a donation attendant and utility worker whose triumph story was made possible by Goodwill's Round-Up program. As a child, Robert faced abuse and poverty and never learned how to read or write. After decades of hiding his disability, Robert began working for Goodwill and gained the friendship, support and encouragement of Goodwill Store Manager, Lauren Maddox and Goodwill Way Guide, Lauren James. Their bond proved to be the driving force that helped Robert achieve his goal of learning how to read.
