Every day is Earth Day at Goodwill NY-NJ, but today, we join the global community to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Earth Day.
Last year, our 42 Goodwill NY-NJ stores helped environmentally conscious families keep more than 112 million pounds of unwanted usable clothing and household goods out of local landfills. Thanks to almost 900 thousand donors, who re-used and re-purposed goods, we reached this unprecedented milestone!

Goodwill was named the Disability Nonprofit Brand of the Year as part of the 2015 Harris Poll EquiTrend® Study, an annual brand equity study which was released this week. The study ranked consumer awareness and perception of charitable nonprofit brands based on three factors — familiarity, quality and purchase consideration — that result in a brand equity rating for each brand. The study, which was conducted for the 27th year, surveyed more than 38,000 Americans who assessed brands across 148 categories.
