Host A Donation Drive

Goodwill is here to help

Donation drives are one of the simplest ways to contribute to your community. Whether you’re a corporate organization, school, church or community organization, we can help you in hosting a successful drive! Goodwill provides the donation bins for the event, flyers to inform members about the event, and trucks to pick up the donations when the bins are full. To get started, contact us at

The Neighborhood Challenge is a competition among Neighborhood Associations in Lincoln. During this event, neighborhoods are encouraged to donate the leftover items from their neighborhood garage sales or clean ups. It can also be a donation event. The top three Neighborhood Associations who collect the most pounds in donations exceeding 2,000 pounds will win a cash prize. 


Pick-ups may be scheduled any day of the week with the limit of two neighborhoods per day. Goodwill must be given a two week notice before the desired pick-up day. Pick-ups will be in a centralized location. 

Sign Up
