Donated Goods Retail Program
The Donated Goods Retail (DGR) program consists of the following: attended donation centers, traditional retail stores, an ecommerce “virtual” store, the logistics department (for moving donations, storing donations, and supporting the retail stores), and the post-retail/recycling operation. The collection & sale of donated goods produces revenue Goodwill uses to provide employment-related services to the community. More importantly, however, each department in the DGR program serves as a training center where clients with disabilities and other barriers to employment gain valuable skills needed to prepare for and or integrate back into the world of work.
