Goodwill Industries of Houston is grateful for donations of many kinds, from material donations, volunteer time and in-kind services such as printing and refreshments, to financial donations. We strive to be as self-supporting as possible by generating nearly 80 percent of our revenues through the sale of donated materials.
At Goodwill Houston your donations create jobs and opportunities for others. Learn more about how we put your material donations to work here. Learn more about how your financial donation change lives and make a financial donation using our online donation form.
Twenty-five years ago, Goodwill Houston made the decision to no longer provide donation pick-up services. Since then, we have worked to make donating as easy and convenient as possible. We now have more than 100 locations across the Greater Houston area where you can drop-off your gently used clothing and household items – and help create job opportunities in our local community. For locations in and around the Houston area, see our Donation Center locator or our Retail Store locator.

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.
