New Goodwill donation center opens at University Heights Community Center

December 19th, 2011 by master

Just in time for the holidays, Seattle Goodwill just opened a new donation collection site in the parking lot of the University Heights Community Center.

Please take into account the following when preparing your donation: Goodwill can’t fix items that are broken or are in poor condition and can’t except anything that’s been recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. You can find a list of those items at www.cpsc.gov. And it seems like a no-brainer but it appears it needs to be said that they don’t accept hazardous, poisonous or flammable material.

Here’s a list of what they do take:
Antiques and Collectibles
Art
BBQ grills (must be clean and without propane tanks)
Bed frames
Books
Camping Equipment
Carpeting (new, never installed)
Cell Phones
CDs, records and cassettes
Clothing and accessories
Computers – desktop, laptop and monitors* (see below)
Computer accessories – printers, mice, scanners, keyboards, etc.
Computer software (factory sealed)
Small electronics
Exercise equipment
Futon frames and gently used futon mattresses
Home decor

Rugs
Shoes
