When you support GIENC®, you are helping transform lives through opportunity. Your donations are the engine that drives job creation and sustainable employment opportunities for individuals within our local and regional communities. When you donate clothing or food to one of our 42 Employment Program Centers, you ensure that GIENC can continue to provide funds to under-resourced community partners, support educational initiatives through free online learning and literacy campaigns, and enrich lives by providing individuals access to food, healthcare, and clothing.
Thank you for choosing to partner with GIENC in serving others where they are!
Your generosity has a much bigger impact than you think. Each donation, big or small, provides employment, education, and life enrichment opportunities for those in our community. A powerful connection exists between our donors, employees, and our stores. GIENC’s ability to continue to offer opportunities hinges on maintaining a sustainable source of donated goods within our Employment Program Centers. The proceeds from our centers ensure that GIENC can continue to provide relevant and meaningful programming throughout the Triangle, Sandhills, and greater eastern North Carolina. Please consider donating your clothing, food, and household items to an Employment Program Center near you.
If you have any questions regarding items you can and cannot donate, please contact your local Employment Program Center.
All donations to Goodwill are tax-deductible. Goodwill cannot establish or confirm a value for your donations of items. Please visit www.irs.gov to learn more about itemizing donated goods.
When you make a financial contribution to GIENC, you’re not just giving a gift—you’re making an investment in people, and in the future of North Carolina.
