It’s simple. When you donate your stuff to Goodwill®, you create opportunities for individuals in your community looking to find a job and build skills, including veterans and military families, single mothers and many others. Walk around your home and collect items you and your family no longer need — that shirt that’s been hanging in the back of your closet for three years, the toy trike your five-year old has outgrown, the holiday gift from grandma you never quite found a place for, etc.

Direct Donations is a great alternative to putting items in a landfill, and it allows you to meet the artists, educators, and community organizers who directly benefit from your generosity. By saving 1,630,000 lbs of materials from the waste stream last year, Materials for the Arts offset CO2 emissions equivalent to 553,500 trees, which is 25x the amount of trees in Central Park. Typical donations to MFTA include bolts of fabric, paper, art books, office supplies, electronics, props, paint, frames, craft supplies, and furniture. MFTA reserves the right to refuse any item and cannot accept weapons, medicine, dangerous chemicals, or toxic substances.
