Do Good. Feel Great.

Goodwill volunteers are more than an important and valued extension of our staff. They act as ambassadors, support our clients and partner with us to perform a wide variety of rewarding tasks essential to supporting our mission. There are many ways you can make a difference by volunteering at Goodwill. We are always looking for people with unique backgrounds, talents and skill levels. We periodically seek volunteers to help with various activities, some of which are listed below. If you have a special skill or talent that you would like to share through a volunteer experience, please let us know.

* You must apply in person at a Goodwill store near you to learn how we can help you fulfill your court-ordered community service requirements. A list of store locations can be found here. Remember to bring your court paperwork with you. The store manager will work with you to set a schedule that accommodates your availability.

Please note that Goodwill policy prohibits approval of community service hours that stem from charges of violent crimes, theft or drug dealing.
