Goodwill Opens New Donation Center

The Greater Memphis Chamber always celebrates growth in our community. As an added benefit to membership, we offer our expertise and assistance in hosting grand opening and expansion ceremonies. We are excited to see our members succeed and want to make sure they have the resources to do so. Today we're celebrating Goodwill and their new donation center.

Why Memphis? Why this location?
This 1938 former service-station on 2218 Central Avenue was a perfect location for a Goodwill Attended Donation Center because it offers drive-thru convenience and it is in close proximity to our former location next to Central BBQ.

What does your business do or provide?
Goodwill’s mission is to change the lives of people with disabilities and other barriers to employment through the power of work, education and empowerment. We take gently-used clothing and household items and process them for sale which creates meaningful employment for those who “touch” the donations every step of the way. Goodwill also saves close to 7.2 million pounds of material from landfills.

What makes your business stand out?
Locations. We strive to be in convenient locations so that donating is convenient and stress free.  Memphis Goodwill currently has 39 Attended Donation Centers across the Mid-South. We also have two job centers and an adult charter school as extensions of our mission services.

Why did you join the Chamber?
The Chamber is a great place to connect and to forge partnerships to make our community better for all individuals.
