Mobile Donation Unit 

Moving to a new home? Looking for ways to declutter your home or office? Support local programs by donating to Goodwill. And now, it's easier than ever!

Goodwill of Western New York parks our Mobile Donation Unit at your home, business, or community event for THREE DAYS at no cost. Fill the trailer with boxes, furniture or other household goods you would like to donate. Goodwill picks up the unit and delivers your donations to a local Goodwill Donation Center to benefit workforce development programs right in your community. This program is currently only available in Erie, Niagara, Genesee, and Wyoming Counties.

To ensure the safety of the Mobile Donation Unit, it must be parked on a flat surface measuring at least 17 feet long, 7 feet wide, and 7 feet high. Please note the mobile donation center will stay stationery throughout the duration of the reservation. 

To learn more and complete reservation inquiry, visit the website below. Once you complete the form, you will be contacted by a Goodwill of Western New York representative to discuss the details of your needs and availability. Completion of the inquiry form does not guarantee availability.
