Goodwill of Greater Washington launched the Good Samaritan Program in 1990 to partner with local government and community-based organizations to help people in need in the community. The clothing vouchers allow people to shop for up to $40 worth of clothing and shoes at any of our 13 of Goodwill of Greater Washington's retail stores.
Since 1990, our Good Samaritan Program has quietly returned $1.8 million dollars worth of clothing to more than 300 social service providing agencies. Last year, 97 government and nonprofit social service agencies, churches and schools helped us distribute 2,437 Good Samaritan clothing vouchers to people in need in the community. The vouchers were redeemed for $36,000 worth of clothing and shoes at Goodwill's nine area retail stores.
All government and private social service organizations, churches and schools are eligible for Good Samaritan Program membership at absolutely no charge. Our only request is that the vouchers be redistributed to your most neediest clients.
Lost, stolen, or expired vouchers cannot be replaced. Goodwill of Greater Washington reserves the right to change or alter this program at any time.
