Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday!

Tomorrow, Tuesday, December 3, you will see the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #GiftofWarmth floating around on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Goodwill will participate in this one-day philanthropic movement. We invite you to join us!

With your help, #GivingTuesday participants will demonstrate how we all can pull together to give the #GiftofWarmth. This winter season, your financial donation will provide scarves, hats and gloves for children in our Goodwill programs.

Your donation, no matter the size, multiplied by the gifts of others, will keep children healthy and warm this season. Make a difference in the life of a child this winter!

There are two ways you can help:

1. Help promote the campaign by sharing the images below and sharing this sample tweet/status:

Help give the #GiftofWarmth this #GivingTuesday to 1200 kids this winter

2. Make a donation here. A gift of just $8 can give a child a hat, scarf and gloves this holiday season.


Your purchases support the mission of Goodwill.

Designer Goodwill

Every now and then, our great @goodwillnynj twitter followers share their best Goodwill finds with us. Here’s one of our absolute favorites – an Oscar de la Renta tux jacket found at a Goodwill store in Queens by the stylish Mr. Joey Cooper.

Joey found this fabulous Oscar de la Renta jacket at the Goodwill in Queens.

Joey loved his Goodwill find so much, he wore it to a holiday party for the popular fashion company he works for. “Everyone loved it!” he told us. We can see why, Joey – you look great!
