Our friends at the Burien Goodwill want to share that the end of the year is often a great time to donate, not only to purge for the new year but for end-of-the-year tax deductions:

Do you want to lower your tax bill and help people at the same time? Then donate to Goodwill by December 31! All you have to do is gather clothing, books, shoes, toys, electronics, furniture or anything else that you’re not using and take them to a Goodwill donation center. Donations are tax-deductible because Goodwill is a nonprofit organization and every donor can receive a tax receipt.

What’s more, your donations help people in the community get jobs and support themselves and their families. Goodwill sells your donations in its 23 nonprofit retail thrift stores, located throughout the central and northern Puget Sound region and uses the net proceeds to offer free classes. The ten Goodwill Job Training and Education Centers are lifelines to people who need job skills to find work.

You can also be eco-friendly by recycling. Goodwill participates in a successful program called E-Cycle Washington. Just bring in your old televisions, computers, monitors and laptops to one of Goodwill’s donation centers, and they will be recycled responsibly, free of charge.

Goodwill operates donation centers in convenient locations across the region. Visit to find a center near you.

The Burien Goodwill is located at 1031 SW 128th Street; (206) 957-1020.
