If you need to donate ideas you don't want or need, there are several Goodwill stores throughout the state of Texas. With literally thousands of stores all over the United States, you can easily find one near your house. But while it's important to know that they're around you, it's also important to know what you're allowed to donate AT a Goodwill.

What can you donate to Goodwill at Texas?

According to the Goodwill East Texas website, they listed all the accepted items you can donate at any store. Most of the items are what you've come to expect:

  • Books,

  • Toys
  • DVD & VHS movies,
  • Small appliances & furniture like microwaves, lamps that work,
  • Flat screen TVs,
  • Radios,
  • Computers/computer accessories,
  • Cookware,
  • Tools; hand tools or garden tool
  • Office & school supplies,
  • Baskets & storage containers
Vintage items in a residential garage sale setting.

You're even allowed to donate vehicles such as bicycles and yes... you can even donate your car to Goodwill if you really wanted to.

These are all common items we've known by now as these are all items that can truly benefit a family or someone who really needs it. (Those old clothes that don't fit you anymore might just help a kid find something to wear the next day).
