Free Rides to Goodwill Stores

July 31, 2009 at 6:57 am | Posted in Deals | 2 Comments

Goodwill Industries is making it even easier to donate to their stores in the San Francisco Bay Area with this new promotion:

“Get a Free Ride to Donate to Goodwill!

“Need more room for spring clothes? That old computer still sitting in your closet? What about those books that you read and promised to give away so that someone else could enjoy them?

“If you have gently used goods that you would like to donate but don’t have a ride, check out the new partnership Goodwill Industries has with City CarShare, a nonprofit that helps people get around in a ecologically responsible way. They even have fuel-efficient trucks for those big donations! Now, City CarShare members can receive a $10 credit toward their vehicle fees when they make a donation to Goodwill. Email or mail a copy of your dated donation receipt to City CarShare Marketing at 1182 Market Street Suite 300, San Francisco CA 94102.

“If you’re not a member yet, you can get $30 in free driving when you sign up for a ShareLocal or SharePlus membership. Simply enter Goodwill as the promo code on your online application at

“Make your next donation the easy way. Let City CarShare give you a break when you drop off your old stuff!”

  1. In San Francisco, at least some neighborhoods (Richmond district) had Large Trash Pickup days, irregularly scheduled, but were then cancelled. I suspect it may have been in reaction to the “unsightliness” (?) of scavengers, or a reaction to “outsiders”. The effect is horrible in ecological/re-use terms. The city will schedule pickups of large trash items (including furniture, etc.), but these must be itemized for pickup, and it becomes a criminal offense to scavenge anything left in this manner. Naturally, some things can be sold on Craigslist, or donated to Goodwill, but there’s a large borderline class of things which are unsaleable but nevertheless valuable to the right scavenger. I’m angry at the city for breaking this loop. Someone please comment, and perhaps we can affect public policy.
