While cleaning and organizing the house, a lot of people will choose to donate items to Goodwill. Do you know what items you cannot donate to Minnesota Goodwill locations?

There are about 56 Goodwill locations over 38 different Minnesota cities. From Minneapolis, to Saint Paul, to Duluth, and more.

A lot of people like to donate to Goodwill locations because it helps people find good working and affordable clothing and other goods that they might not be able to get. They also have a “donate-shop-reuse-educate-employ” that diverts over 65 million pounds from landfills annually.

They also have contactless drop-off bins that safeguard donors and employees all while preventing the spread of germs. With that being said, workers are unable to assist with unloading or loading at this time.

You can find the Duluth location at 700 Garfield Avenue.
