Back-To-School with Goodwill

It’s time to say farewell to the lazy days of summer and hello to a busy fall filled with school, homework, soccer practice, dance class and more!  Don’t worry–Goodwill has you covered for all of your back-to-school essentials.

Clothing trends are constantly changing.  To get the latest looks for less while being a sustainable fashionista, shop Goodwill.  We collect nearly 100 million pounds of donated textiles each year!  What does this mean for you and your family?  It means you will have LOTS to choose from by shopping Goodwill.    

Beyond clothing, Goodwill has you covered for items like backpacks, lamps, desks, dorm décor and more.  With our freshness guarantee, you will see thousands of items hit our stores every day and sometimes every hour.

If you are looking to stretch your shopping dollars even further, definitely consider taking advantage of Goodwill’s special promotions (   For example, with our Colors of the Week Sale and Dollar Day Sunday you can save BIG.  Each week we post two featured colors of the week.  These featured colors can be purchased for 50% off.  And then on Sunday these colors go for $1!  With savings like this, stores do get crowded—beware!  Goodwill also offers a Student SAVE-A-LOT discount program.  Simply bring your high school or college ID to receive a 15% off discount. 

Shopping Goodwill doesn’t just make good financial sense and support sustainability efforts.  It supports a fantastic mission that helps build a better community for all of us.  Your purchases fund job training programs and career services that help individuals with disabilities and disadvantages get to work!

Lastly, don’t forget the adage “out with the old in with the new.”  Please consider donating unwanted and undersized items to Goodwill.  We will give them a new life and provide someone in your community with the opportunity to better theirs.
