Goodwill/Goodwill Industries is a nationwide organization with the mission of putting people to work. Goodwill's Retail Services collect donated clothing and household goods, then sells the items in their stores for affordable prices. Revenue from sales of donated items provides funding for vocational training and other programs and services that Goodwill offers. It is important to note that 93 cents of every dollar they spend goes directly to their programs and services. Goodwill is consistently ranked among top charities that make your donation go further.
The Salvation Army has many facets, but we primarily work with The Salvation Army Family Stores which are the core of their Adult Rehabilitation Center philosophy. The Salvation Army community stores provide quality clothing, furniture, and other goods at bargain prices. The proceeds from these stores are used to fund their Adult Rehabilitation Centers which are thus self-sustaining. The Salvation Army helps employ rehabilitating adults in their Family Stores which provide great deals and bargain prices on clothing, furniture, household goods, sporting equipment, books, electronics, and much more.
Incorporated in May 2018, The Silver Closet was born from a conversation between a senior housing professional and a real estate agent. One had clients without anything. The other had clients with too much stuff. Why not connect these two populations to specifically serve seniors? The Silver Closet was born. We exist not only to provide gently used household goods to seniors, but also to offer health, safety, and dignity to our seniors in senior housing communities. As a young new non profit, our funding comes from private donations, fund raisers, and offering clean out services to people who are moving out of their home. Our volunteers and movers will empty the home, minimizing what goes to a landfill, and recycling what can be recycled. Revenue from clean outs allows us to offer delivery service of household goods to our seniors without transportation.
Donations of used clothing and household items at this location benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities
