At Goodwill NYNJ, we believe everyone deserves the chance to build a better life for themselves, their family, and their community. With our 70 programs across 30 sites in New York City, northern New Jersey, and the surrounding area, we work each day to make it possible for more than 80,000 people every year to do just that. Our programs empower individuals with disabilities, underemployed and unemployed individuals, veterans, seniors, immigrants and refugees, at-risk youth, low-income families, and anyone who may have a barrier to employment. The Goodwill Stores keep over 100 million pounds of usable goods out of landfills each year, reselling donated items to support our programs. We are proud to partner with the New York Road Runners, not only with Team Goodwill members running the race, but also with Goodwill staff and volunteers collecting nearly 200,000 pounds of clothing donated by runners as they shed layers during the race. Join us and make an impact - changing lives, empowering jobs, and helping the environment!
