Being Green

At Goodwill, we like to consider ourselves the original recycler. Goodwill Industries® of Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia has always been an entrepreneurial leader, environmental pioneer and social innovator of the “reduce, reuse, repurpose” practice.

By donating your unwanted items to Goodwill, you are reducing the amount of waste going to local landfills. And, through a partnership with Dell, Goodwill provides an easy way for residents to recycle electronic items too, like computers, printers, cell phones etc…

Your donated goods have the power to make a difference in people’s lives, strengthen communities, and create a healthier environment. Reselling donated goods not only provides Goodwill with a revenue stream to support its mission of putting people with special needs to work, it makes us responsible environmental stewards— a role we take very seriously!

Goodwill is committed to improving the sustainability of our operations. Textiles, books, shoes, accessories and housewares that do not sell in Goodwill’s retail stores are salvaged. Nothing goes in the trash.

Just as there are things you Recycle, there are things you Donate. Here are 5 things that are probably collecting dust in your house that you can recycle by donating to Goodwill!

 

1. Cell Phone. That Zach Morris size phone stored in one of your junk drawers. Hello? Goodwill is calling.

2. Clothing. Follow the rule—if you haven’t worn it in a year, odds are you aren’t going to wear it. Donate it!

3. Computers. Good news. Goodwill accepts computers  in working and not working order!

4 . Chachkes. (choch – ke) That “unique” candle holder your grandma gave you for your birthday last year. Give it another home—Goodwill!

5. Books. Because, how many more times can you read the Harry Potter series?

The list could go on and on. But, you get the picture…clear the clutter and donate to Goodwill!

Students enrolled in the summer session of Goodwill’s School-to-Work Program had the opportunity to gain landscape and park maintenance job skills working in the Medford Township Park System. This program, which helps bridge the gap between the classroom and the workplace for special needs students from Camden City high schools, provides both hands-on training and a weekly paycheck from Goodwill. Many thanks to Medford Township for partnering with Goodwill and providing such wonderful work opportunities for our students!

Back-to-School With a Little More Money in Your Pocket

Let’s face it–Back-to-School shopping can be an expensive adventure for many families.  A single outfit (jeans, top, and shoes) can cost close to $80.  For the same NAME BRAND outfit, it may cost nearly double!  Here at Goodwill, we are your Back to School headquarters for savings.  In an economy where it is just not reasonable to spend $80 or more on an outfit, Goodwill can provide you with same name brand clothing at up to 90% less expensive.  Our donors are generous in donating their Ralph Lauren, Hollister, Lacoste, Polo, American Eagle, Nike and LOTS of other great brands.  Also, shoe brands such as Nike, Adidas, Uggs, and Timberland, just to name a few, are sold on a daily basis at just a fraction of the original price.

We are very excited to bring you our Back to School line of quality, clean, and affordable clothing along with accessories such as backpacks and shoes.  We will also have school supplies such as pens, pencils, notebooks, and much more.  So, please stop in your nearest Goodwill this Back to School season and reap the rewards of tremendous SAVINGS while supporting one of America’s top charities and going green!
