Goodwill Rhode Island accepts donations of men's, women's or children's clothing and other textiles. Some of the clothing donations are provided to our clients who may need an outfit for an interview or a one week supply of clothing for a new job. Most is sold to neighboring Goodwill’s, or as salvage with revenues raised going back into programs and services for Rhode Islanders.
You may drop off your old clothing at one of our many clothing donation bins throughout the state or at the drop-box located in front of our building located at 100 Houghton Street, Providence, RI. If you have furniture, electronics or other non-clothing items, please contact us or see our electronics donations page as these items are not accepted at our clothing bin locations.
If you need to locate a clothing bin location, please call (401) 861-2080 or email Kevin Fisette for the location closest to you. The proceeds from this program are reinvested in our job training and education for Rhode Islanders with disabilities and other barriers to employment, as well as job training and mentoring for at-risk youth through the Youth Center in Providence. Your donations help us to offer a “hand up” to those looking for a better life, regardless of age, race, color or national origin.
