CANTON, OH – OCTOBER 21, 2022 – Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland and East Central Ohio is opening a new attended donation center and “Wired Up” computer store in Bainbridge Township in Tanglewood Square on Friday, October 28, 2022.
The computer store will feature desktop computers, laptops, tablets, phones, and tech accessories. These items are all evaluated and cleared of any data by Goodwill IT specialists prior to being sold. Accessories include adapters, cables, and more.
Goodwill Donation Centers are drop-off donation centers staffed by Goodwill employees. These locations are a primary source of goods which are sold in Goodwill retail stores. At the center, donations of gently used clothing, as well as common household items such as dishes, small appliances, home décor items, books, movies, games, and toys will be accepted. Material donations to this Donation Center will help to support Goodwill’s 28 community outreach programs. Last year, more than 14,000 people were served by the local Goodwill’s mission work including job training and placement for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment, parenting programs, rape crisis services and more.
“Donations are our lifeblood at Goodwill,” explained VP of Marketing and Development Maureen Ater. “Donation Centers like this provide much needed material for our area stores. Sales from those stores go directly back into the local community through our mission work. We are excited to open our very first Computer Store to the Bainbridge Township/Chagrin Falls communities. The store will offer tremendous savings on computers and tech accessories, all while supporting local outreach programs.”
Goodwill currently has a tremendous need for household items.
The new center is located at 8575 Tanglewood Square, located next to Verizon and across from Coyote’s Mexican Grill. Donations will be accepted from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. every Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sundays.
