Goodwill and the City of London Supporting Refugees
Accepting Donations at all Goodwill Locations
Goodwill Industries, Ontario Great Lakes is partnering with the City of London to help, where needed, organize the goods donated by thousands of generous Londoners. Goodwill will provide refugees with access to the full array of donations, including full-access to all of the goods available in Goodwill Community Stores.
“This is exactly the kind of community support we need from our local organizations,” said Mayor Matt Brown. “Goodwill is involved in so many incredible grassroots efforts and it is great to see them play this important role in helping our new friends and our new neighbours resettle here in London.”
Clothing, household items, electronics, recreational items, furniture and other goods, with the intension of supporting refugees, are being received at all Goodwill Donation Centres in London and Middlesex. The goods are being streamed into the Community Stores, and Goodwill in turn is providing vouchers, supported shopping experiences, interpreters, and other respectful approaches to enable refugees to get settled.
The goal is to mobilize community support in an efficient manner utilizing Goodwill’s logistics and infrastructure, while at the same time ensuring opportunities for refugees to have individual choice in the selection of items that fit or suit their needs. The aim is to compliment and where needed support the many worthy initiatives supporting refugee settlement.
To donate in support of refugee settlement go to one of Goodwill’s eight Attended Donation Centres the London region open seven days per week, Monday – Friday: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Saturday: 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sunday: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m
