New Goodwill donation station opens in West Seattle

If you haven’t already spotted the new Goodwill donation station in West Seattle – it’s been there at least a week – the nonprofit organization is now ready to tell the world about it. 4722 Fauntleroy Way SW is the address, on the south side of West Seattle Produce, between SW Alaska and SW Edmunds. Goodwill spokesperson Katherine Boury shared the news, and the photo (that’s the type of truck you’ll see set up there every day). The collection site is open 9 am-6 pm every day of the year (except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter) and, as noted on its official web page, will even take electronics, as long as they’re not too big – no TVs or computer monitors larger than 19 inches. (West Seattle also has a donation-dropoff site for Northwest Center, 44th and Edmunds in The junction, 9 am-5 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.)

    I dropped off a couple of items today and told the very nice attendants that we were happy to have them in the hood. This will be a real timesaver.

    I have to admit, in the past 6 months or so, I’ve started setting aside most of the things I’d usually donate to Goodwill and, instead, opt give them to the campers at Nickelsville. That said, this is definitely awesome, and the things which those at NV cannot use, I’ll be sure to take to the new location. (Much nicer than having to deal with bridge traffic.)

    Seattle Goodwill does not “walk the talk” they way they say they do. Their executives and management earn disproportionately more than the people doing the day-to-day work, and they don’t help many people for all the millions of dollars they generate from our free donations. They brag that they place their program trainees at jobs that pay more than Goodwill pays their own staff! Good for the program trainees; bad for those working to help them.

    The main Seattle store has more sales revenue than any Goodwill in the nation! I advise looking at their financials at, talk with some of their unhappy employees, and donate to Nickelsville or Northwest Center.

Sorry, comment time is over.
