Good Will Pack & Ship Donations

The holiday season is upon us, and there is no greater time than now to help your community. On top of the holidays, the colder temperatures are here to stay, and donating the winter clothes you no longer need is a great way to de-clutter your space and give back to those in need.

Goodwill of Greater Washington makes donating easy. Without having to leave your home, you can donate to Good Will with these three easy steps. It’s time to clean those closets out and start donating!

Good Will Mail-In Donations

  1. Box Up Your Donation. Clothing, footwear, and accessories are all accepted, and merchandise without corporate or event logos is preferred. Individual packages must be under 70 lbs.
  2. Print & Attach Shipping Label. Free mailing labels are available exclusively for Goodwill donations for the Greater Washington service area.
  3. Mail Your Donation Packages for Free. Schedule a free package pickup through USPS. Your donations will be picked up from your home and mailed directly to Goodwill. Your donation packages can be dropped off at a local US Post Office as well.

Goodwill Pack & Ship takes any sort of inconvenience out of donating unwanted clothes. Giving back to the community is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. With these three easy steps, your closet will be de-cluttered, you will have made a contribution to the community, and you can go into the winter months knowing you’ve made a difference. There is no greater way to start the holiday season!  

Giving Thanks (and Turkeys)

This week is all about slowing down and taking the time to reflect on the things we are grateful for. There are many things in our lives that are easy to take for granted: a roof over our heads, a warm coat on a winter day, or a good hot meal. for instance. This Thanksgiving, WC Smith set out once again to make a difference in the lives of some of our DC neighbors.

In addition to donating 30 turkeys to the Father McKenna Center this year, our development team also assisted Kim and her organization in the distribution of 350 Thanksgiving dinners to families in DC. Turkey donations also went to The Perry School, Mt. Airy Baptist Church, and Holy Redeemer Church. Approximately 30 soldiers from the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment, also known as “The Old Guard,” were at the center on Friday assisting with Thanksgiving preparation. In total, WC Smith donated 100 turkeys to organizations focused on serving the Northwest One community.

If you’d like to get involved in giving back to your community, you can follow any of the links above or click here to find a volunteering opportunity that works for you. Happy Thanksgiving everyone, may you be surrounded with love and joy this holiday season!
