Host a Donation Drive

Goodwill–West Texas turns your donations into jobs and job training for people with barriers and other special needs right here in our communities. Revenue made from your donated items funds training programs that give people the skills they need to become self-sufficient and independent. We encourage you to host a donation drive to collect clothing, household goods and old computers!

Here are some helpful tips and steps:

Gather your friends, family, classmates, or co-workers and tell them how their donations impact their community. Set a goal for your donation drive. Will you measure pounds donated? How about setting up a competition for your drive? There are many ways to make your event fun!

Schedule a drive by contacting ssmith@goodwillwesttexas.org.

You’ll need the following information:

• Date, location and time of drive

• How many trucks or bins you will need

Promote your drive at least two weeks in advance! There are many ways to do this including through Facebook, Twitter, your company’s newsletter, your local newspaper, your school’s assembly, daily announcements, flyers and email.

On the day of the drive, Goodwill–West Texas will dispatch a truck and a Donation Attendant to the location of the drive. The Donation Attendant will provide donation receipts to all donors.

Tell us about your drive! Email us pictures and results of your donation drive to ssmith@goodwillwesttexas.org and we will post to Facebook and our website. Thank you for your support!
