Goodwill@Work in Calgary

Goodwill Industries of Alberta accepts donations to sell at their thrift stores.  They often receive donations of damaged or undesirable items that cannot be sold. Through their Goodwill@Work program, Goodwill hopes to establish Cleaning Cloth, and Repair for Good programs at their impact centre in Calgary. Both programs will upcycle and recycle items thereby diverting material from landfill. In 2021, 6700 kg of textiles and 9500 kg of furniture were diverted from the landfill through these programs in Edmonton. This grant will help Goodwill replicate this successful program in Calgary.
