Donate Items

We strive to be as self-supporting as possible by generating nearly 80 percent of our revenues through the sale of donated materials.

Computers and computing equipment

Goodwill Houston and Dell have partnered to provide RECONNECT, a free program for consumers to reuse and responsibly recycle unwanted computers. Donate your old computers, monitors, keyboards, mice, speakers, etc. for free at any Goodwill Houston store or attended donation center. Any brand computer is eligible for donation. RECONNECT will refurbish or recycle the equipment. When you buy an affordable system that's great for home or school use, you benefit the community and help put people to work.
