Host a Donation Drive With Goodwill Omaha
Building on Goodwill’s belief that it feels good to give back, Goodwill Omaha’s community partners can support our employment training and placement programs by hosting a corporate or neighborhood-wide donation drive. The materials items we collect at the drive will be sold in our retail stores to subsidize our programs, which offer job training, certification, and placement services for people in the community.
Your material donations help Goodwill Omaha’s mission in so many ways! We call our approach “the donation life cycle,” and here’s how it works:
When you donate items to Goodwill Omaha, we sell those items in our retail stores. The proceeds from the sale of your donated items subsidize our employment programs and services, giving thousands of individuals in the Omaha metro the chance to earn a living, discover independence, and succeed in life. No matter how you donate to Goodwill Omaha — whether material items or a monetary gift — you’re helping us put more people in our community to work!
Goodwill’s job training programs, employment placement, and other services have been transforming lives for more than a century. You can support our mission programs and help people in our community find long-term work just by hosting a donation drive for Goodwill Omaha. The material donations we collect at donation drives give our customers the “thrill of the hunt” when they visit our stores, and the sale of these items funds Goodwill’s employment training, certification, and placement programs for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment.

Tips for Success With Your Donation Drive
Raise awareness and inform others. Invite family members, friends, employees, and peers to participate in your donation drive. Promote your donation drive on social media and send via email. Don’t forget to make it fun and engaging! For example, you could create a poster with a meter or tallies to track donations and your drive’s progress.
Choose the right location. Host your donation drive at a central location that’s easily accessible to the community. Make sure to clearly mark donation drop-off zones and boxes.
Schedule the delivery of your drive items. Once you’ve let us know you’re interested in hosting a donation drive with Goodwill Omaha, our development and retail operations teams will contact you to coordinate and schedule pickup of all donated items.
