A second Goodwill Donation Drive-Thru Centre is set to open at the end of this month located at the corner of Westcott and Tecumseh Road East just one block east of Central.

Windsorites are encouraged to drop off gently used goods, such as clothing, books, furniture, housewares, toys and much more, to help the environment by diverting these items from landfills.

The first location opened in the city last July, with every donation helping to spur employment. Your gently used goods are sold in retail stores, which fund employment training and counseling. These initiatives help individuals develop work and life skills, leading to employment. For every 50 people who donate at the site, one full-time job is created.

Goodwill’s future plans for Windsor-Essex include up to four more donation centres and two retail stores over the next five years, making an even bigger impact in the Windsor–Essex area.
