Grand Opening! Goodwill Flagship Store

Goodwill is opening its brand new flagship store and donation center in North Plainfield on Thursday, September 21!  The 12,000 square-foot store and donation center is the first built from the ground-up and features a convenient drive-up donation center.  This second Goodwill retail location in Somerset County will bring 36 jobs to the community and serve as a retail training enclave for individuals with disabilities from local rehabilitation agencies.

Goodwill stores offer local residents the opportunity to contribute to the mission of Goodwill by donating the belongings they no longer need. Donors will receive a tax receipt upon request. Goodwill’s mission is to empower individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment to gain independence through the power of work.

Thanks to the support of our New Jersey customers and donors, Goodwill provided services for 592 local residents with disabilities and barriers to employment in 2016. We employ more than 300 community residents in our eleven stores and donation centers in the Garden State. Goodwill NYNJ, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has helped New York and New Jersey residents re-use and re-purpose possessions they no longer need since 1915. Last year, we helped NJ and NY communities divert 128 million pounds of textiles from landfills.
