Your Donations Change Lives

When you donate your gently used goods in Goodwill Omaha’s retail stores, the revenue we generate from selling those items goes directly toward supporting our mission.

That means your donations have a direct impact on helping neighbors right here in our community get access to job training and placement programs, so they can find a new sense of independence and purpose.
