A Great Way to Help Your Local Peoria, IL Community!
When you need to clear space in your attic or garage, don’t just give the clothes away or set up a garage sale. Consider a charitable donation to your local Peoria, IL Goodwill! Goodwill Industries of Central Illinois has eleven stores and two donation centers throughout the region. Almost anything you have can be donated: your clothing, kitchen appliances, shoes, even your old car!
The best reason to donate to Goodwill is that it benefits you and your local community. The items you donate are sold back to local consumers, and almost all of the profits are used to fund community outreach programs. Plus, your donations are eligible for an income tax deduction!
