Goodwill says this is their largest donation week of the year.
KENNEWICK, WA - It's out with the old and in with the new this week. People are making space for all their new gifts by donating to Goodwill.
Goodwill says this is their largest donation week of the year. That also means it's the best shopping week of the year with thousands of new items stocked in their stores.
Many people take advantage of donating now before the new year to receive a tax deduction.
"Not only are they giving stuff away to us, but any customer that comes in and donates is actually getting something in return. It definitely creates a really good mutual beneficial relationship with the people and our customers," said Chris Noyes, Goodwill.
Goodwill estimates that 71,000 loads of goods will be dropped off at their Washington locations this week.
