Find stuff to donate. A good place to start is your closet, basement or garage. In addition to clothing, small appliances & home decor, some Goodwill locations accept computer equipment and vehicles.
Gather items in one place.
If donating electrical equipment or battery-operated items, it is helpful to test them out first. Also, we appreciate it if all clothes are washed or dry cleaned.
