Donation Event - Fall Clean Sweep

Donation Event - Fall Clean Sweep
Long before green came into style, Goodwill pioneered the “reduce, reuse, repurpose” practice in 1902. Today, that philosophy continues as part of our commitment to caring for people and the planet.

With us, donated goods have the power to do GOOD, to make a difference in people’s lives, to strengthen communities, and create a healthier environment. When you donate clothing and other items like books or electronics to Goodwill, your donations are given a “second life.” Items sold in our stores go to a new home and the revenue from the sales fund our employment programs. Items not sold in our stores are donated to partner organizations for their use.

On Saturday September 30th, we are partnering with Wornall Homestead and Country Side Homes Associations to host a donation event, where members of the local community can conveniently donate to Goodwill while learning more about our mission. Volunteers work as Donation Drive Ambassadors who set up for the event, greet donors, accept and sort donations, and pass out donation receipts. Join us!

Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas
In Support of Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas

Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas (Goodwill) empowers people to discover their potential and adapt for the future through the power of work. We help job seekers throughout the entire employment continuum; we support individuals in engaging the workforce, retaining work, gaining skills, and advancing their careers. In 2020, we served 12,065 individuals and placed 601 people into new employment.


Goodwill provides workforce development services, job training, and employment in 82 counties across western Missouri and eastern Kansas, focusing our programs in the following counties: Jackson, Clay, Platte, Wyandotte, and Johnson. We support individuals with different abilities and disadvantaging conditions, such as persons with physical challenges or cognitive disorders, limited education and work history, criminal backgrounds, underemployment or unemployment, or a situational barrier such as lack of transportation or housing.


We believe every person deserves the opportunity to work. Employment is more than a paycheck. It is independence, agency, dignity, and equality. Jobs empower people to support themselves and their loved ones, pursue life goals, and participate in their communities. 


Goodwill impacts lives through three strategies customized to meet participants’ unique needs:


● Our donated goods retail model provides employment, career planning, and upskilling through the recycling and reselling of material donations in our stores. 

● Our commercial and government contracts offer case management and employment for individuals with a different ability. 

● Our employment services and workforce development programs provide job training, job coaching, career placement, and ongoing retention supports for people with severe barriers to employment.


Over our 127 years, we have served over 630,000 people, provided over 23,017,000 services and secured over 203,000 jobs.
