The mission of Goodwill Industries of Northwest Texas is to provide job opportunities for people with barriers to employment. The RoundUp Program is another chance for our customers to help support that mission by donating leftover change from their transaction. The cashier will ask the customer if they would like to “round up” their purchase. If their total transaction came to $2.89, and they decided to “round up,” the remaining 11 cents would go to supporting the Goodwill mission.
How does my change help Goodwill?
Your donation helps us provide FREE computer classes and job search training. While we rely on material donations to sell in our stores, every additional dollar helps us to provide services and opportunities to those with employment barriers, right here in our community.

What is a barrier to employment?
A barrier to employment can be anything that could potentially cause a person to experience difficulty in finding a job or being hired. Some examples include physical or developmental disabilities, being a veteran, a disadvantaged or criminal background, a lack of work experience or even being an older worker.
Aren't I helping by shopping here?
Yes! And we appreciate your support! With so many people out of work and looking for job opportunities, every penny counts. Your change can help us impact even more lives through the power of work.
Great, can I give more?
Absolutely! Let the cashier know what you would like to donate, and it can be added to your purchase!
