Goodwill operates through the resale or recycling of donated goods. By donating to and shopping at Goodwill Industries of San Diego County, you help people in the community get jobs. Help us continue providing independence, pride, and a sense of purpose to thousands of San Diegans by donating or shopping today. Through our programs, Goodwill s mission is to get people with disabilities and other barriers to employment jobs by developing their skills and habits through training and real work. We believe that a job is more than a paycheck. Our programs were created to provide free opportunities to individuals who desire greater independence and a chance to give back to their communities and their families.
