Goodwill donation drop-off

Since 1971, Goodwill NCW has been using the community’s generous donations to make a life-changing impact on the people we serve across 35 counties in north central Wisconsin. The donations are stored and merchandised for sale in our retail stores and training centers, providing meaningful job-skills training and employment opportunities, and the resources generated through the sale of donated merchandise are invested in our people, community, mission and future. Thank you for making it all possible!
