Gap and Goodwill have announced a partnership encouraging consumers to clean out their closets for a cause. From May 19-29, Gap stores in the United States and Canada will accept clothing donations in support of the Donate Movement, an effort powered by Goodwill to educate the public on the positive impacts donations can have on both people and the planet.
When consumers donate clothing to Gap stores during this time period, their donations will be given to Goodwill Industries® and then sold in Goodwill’s more than 2,500 stores. To thank customers for their generous donations, donors will receive 30-percent off their entire Gap purchase, including regularly priced and sale items, just in time for Memorial Day shopping.
Donations to Goodwill support the organization’s mission of providing job training programs and employment placement services to the people who need them most. Goodwill sells donated goods in its stores and uses 84 percent of the revenues generated to fund job training programs across the United States and Canada.
