We have donated a LOT ,and every thing was clean and like new.The worker would throw into large blue container.I said that is full of DIRT and broken glass.I emptied the unit.Spoke to CORP.they were going to correct.Took more items back,same treatment.Called to speak to an officer,got hung up on.I feel extra employment to CLEAN the container,NOT throw things into(brocken items occur) and hire people to CLEAN items comming into being donated would IMPROVE IMAGE.I HAVE NOT DONATED AN ITEM SINCE MANAGEMENT DOES NOT CARE.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

TREAT ITEMS AS THOUGH THEY WERE VALUABLE,EMPTY CONTAINERS(avoid broken item and glass)Clean items comming in so they look more appealing and clean.YOU WANT TO HIRE PEOPLE TEACH THE PEOPLE YOU HIRE TO CARE

I have donated to Goodwill off and on for years. They are always very polite and actually make me feel as if my donation REALLY means something to them. I decided recently to look into a bit more about their mission, I knew the did something with putting people in jobs or to work, but wasn't sure exactly what that meant. I assumed it meant just within their stores, but was surprised and proud to find out how much more they do. When they say they "put people to work" that doesn't just mean in Goodwill. They have these job training centers where people can get resume and interview help. They even help people learn how to use a computer, to better train them for job opportunities. So not only are they employing people within their stores, those stores are helping them (by generating revenue) find people in the community jobs. They have a phrase about "not giving a hand out, but a hand up!" Pretty cool if you ask me. Well done Goodwill!!

I have always donated to Goodwill and even shop their stores - a lot. I love finding the great items at greatly reduced prices. And the best part is, all the revenue from the stores goes to fund a great mission. It's a win-win situation. I'm getting great things for my home without breaking the bank and I'm helping Goodwill educate and train people in our community. I tell my friends all the time to shop Goodwill. I love Goodwill!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Shopping their stores and donating. I didn't know they helped people find work and even learned they have a charter school. I saw information in their stores and then went online. Makes me feel better about donating and spending money at the stores.

The smell sometimes does get to me and I tend to avoid the older stores and go to the newer ones.

The Goodwill stores are getting very expensive... when a piece of furniture is broken and missing parts and they still want $49 for it.. that is ridiculous.. At some stores in Phoenix the prices are reasonable but at most of the stores the prices are at least double. of what they were a year ago .. it just takes all the fun out of it.. I don't mind having to take something home and fix it but really.. it's all priced for 1/2 price Saturday.. I would rather shop the church thirft stores. they have better prices and nicer stuff.

This is a great organization! The stores are well maintained, service is good, and the staff members are always friendly. It's amazing what a person can find there, and it's just a great way to be responsible with resources. And even better, donating and shopping at Goodwill is helping others in the community! That's the best part!

I regularly donate items to Goodwill. I do this because I know that they provide good services. Many Years ago I had job counseling and it really turned my life around, I know that Goodwill does job counseling and If my donations can help this organization provide something that helped me, it makes it that much better.
