Goodwill NYNJ is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We exist to uplift the local communities of New York and Northern New Jersey by using funds generated in our retail stores and donation centers to support employment opportunities for people with disabilities or other obstacles to employment
The situation around COVID-19 is changing so rapidly. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. These are unprecedented times. And your support is needed more than ever.
All 32 of our Goodwill stores in the New York City metropolitan region, including the 10 Northern NJ Counties, have temporarily closed for 2 weeks due to the executive orders from the NY and NJ Governors. The closure has left us without critical funding to operate our programs removing barriers to employment for the most vulnerable residents of our communities and to help them to prepare for jobs.
Goodwill Industries® of Greater NY and Northern NJ will temporarily close its 32 thrift stores while continuing to pay staff, offer remote services for behavioral health, people with development disabilities and those looking for work in response to the latest developments of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) effective today.
Goodwill Industries® of Greater NY and Northern NJ celebrated its debut on Project Runway during Goodwill Extended, its fashion week party with purpose, in partnership with Price.com on Feb. 13 with honorary host celebrity-stylist Karla Welch, and fashion influencers pulling collections from donated clothes and accessories.
