Goodwill, Gap Work Together

Gap and Goodwill Industries have announced a partnership encouraging consumers to clean out their closets for a cause. From May 19-29, Gap stores 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 locally donate clothing to Gap stores during this time period, their donations will be given to Goodwill Industries of Tulsa and then sold in Goodwill’s nine 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 Industries of Tulsa support the organization’s mission of providing job training programs and employment placement services to the people who need them most.

Goodwill nationally sells donated goods in its stores and uses an average of 84 percent of the revenues generated to fund job training programs across the United States and Canada.

“As a company, we invest in career exploration and job readiness for youth, and thousands of our employees volunteer to help young people prepare for the workforce. Giving our customers and employees opportunities to donate clothing in support of Goodwill’s job training programs is a great fit with our community efforts,” says Bobbi Silten, head of global responsibility and president of Gap Foundation.
