June was a Record Month for Clothing and Textile Collections
We would like to thank all of the generous donors who made this June the best month ever!
A grand total of 73,880 pounds of clothing and other textiles were collected from our bins located throughout the state as well as corporate and community events.
Your donations are utilized in many ways – some are given to our clients for job interviews and to get started in a new job. Others are sold in bulk to recycling vendors and others are sorted and held for retail sale.
Each of your donations helps Goodwill provide education, training and job placement services to Rhode Islanders with disabilities and other barriers to employment.

Our Community Partners make it all Possible
Coventry Credit Union has forged a great relationship with Goodwill over the past few years. We have sponsored Clothing Drives and E-Waste events at all branches, benefiting both our members and communities as well as those that Goodwill supports. This year we have already held two very successful Clothing Drives at all 4 branches and there is an outdoor bin located at the Main Street branch in Coventry. Credit Unions were created to help people in communities that were otherwise not able to receive financing to build their lives and support their families – that is why Coventry Credit Union believes in the importance of giving back, whether it be through charitable donations, sponsorships, food drives, or their college scholarship opportunity.
Coventry Credit Union’s mission is to promote a cooperative spirit within the community and to respond to changing member needs, consistent with sound financial practices. Their partnership with Goodwill helps us provide necessary assistance where it is needed, while strengthening ties in the local communities.Together we have collected large quantities of clothing, shoes, toys and electronics. We look forward to continuing and strengthening our relationship for many years to come.
