Donor Rewards Program

What's this all about?

We’re glad you asked!  At Goodwill, we appreciate everyone who donates.  We also know that many of our donors are moms who are clearing out the clutter at home.  Their donations help Goodwill fulfill its mission so that others in our community can learn how to get and keep jobs.  The Goodwill Loves Moms Reward Program gives us a chance to say: “Thank You” to those who donate on a regular basis.

How does it work?

It’s simple, really.  You can register for just $5.00 at any of our Goodwill Industries of Michiana Retail Stores.  You’ll receive a Re-useable Donation Bag and a Reward Card.  Keep the card handy – either in your wallet or attached to your Donation Bag.

As you sort through things at home, fill your Donation Bag.  Then, take it to any Goodwill Industries of Michiana Drive-thru Donation Center.  They’re located at most all of our Retail Stores.  Each time you fill it, we’ll validate your Reward Card with a stamp.  When your card is full, ask for a new card at the Drive-Thru Center and mail in your completed card. Address your envelope to:

Goodwill Loves Moms

P.O. Box 3846

South Bend, IN 46619

Then, we’ll send you a $25.00 Goodwill Shopping Certificate that you can use in any of our stores.  It’s just that easy!

Sounds great, but where do I start?

Sorting and organizing can be overwhelming.  It’s hard to know where to begin!  Start by knowing that you are blessed with abundance.  Then, get some expert advice.

We’ve partnered with Lorie Marrero.  She’s a certified professional organizer and author of: The Clutter Diet.  Lorie can teach you how to de-clutter and organize your home with a step-by-step process.

There are lots of FREE resources on her website:

Once you’re on the site, look to the menu of items on the left side.  Then, click on Free Tips.  That will bring you to a page where you can sign up to receive her weekly “Just a Bite” newsletter.  Then, she’ll send you a link to her free report: “30 Ways to Find Time to Get Organized.”  Lorie can also provide you with daily “Clutter Tweets” and a weekly Clutter Video Tip on YouTube to keep you motivated, if you would like.

You can also interact with Lorie on her Facebook page at:!/clutterdiet?fref=ts.


The Clutter Diet Book
You can purchase Lorie’s book: The Clutter Diet, in any of our stores for $8.00.  The retail value is: $17.95, so it’s a great bargain for a brand new book!
The Clutter Diet Online Program
Lorie also has a web service that you can utilize for a monthly fee.  That offers specific help on your actual projects with her staff of professional organizers.  You’ll receive the education, motivation and support that you need to be successful.  There are weekly plans and assignments to keep you on track.


Goodwill Industries of Michiana is an affiliate with Lorie Marrero, so if you enter her site via this link: she’ll send Goodwill Industries of Michiana a 20% commission on everything you purchase – even your monthly online membership.  So, while you’re learning to de-clutter and organize with Lorie, you’re also helping Goodwill serve our local community.


Why we give… At Family Magazines, we know that having a good job helps keep families together.  Goodwill works with those in our community to make that happen.  We also know how hard moms work to raise their kids, hold down a job and keep the household running smoothly.  That’s why we want to give back to support Goodwill and the moms who deserve a reward for all that they do!
