Goodwill’s contactless donation drop off guidelines:

  • Hours: Monday-Saturday 11am to 7pm and Sunday 10am to 6pm (Closed Memorial Day)
  • Please pre-sort items. All clothing can be placed together in a box or bag and all other household items can be grouped together.

  • If you need a receipt, ask the donation attendant at time of donation.
  • Please practice social distancing at all times.
