If you live north of the city of Seattle, you’ve become a savvy commuter by necessity. You know when to take 99 and when I-5 might actually be faster, and you’re up well before dawn to get a jump-start on traffic.

When it comes to easy and efficient locations for donation, Seattle Goodwill has got you covered. You’ll find our donation sites all along the I-5 corridor and at other commuter-friendly locations within your communities. As you’re preparing to donate, take a look at our donation guidelines. 

Wherever you live up North, chances are good that you’ll find a nearby donation site:

Live in Edmonds?  Commute there by ferry? Our donation site and store are located right on Edmonds Way. Why not take a later ferry and do some thrifting, or donate and then enjoy coffee or dinner in downtown Edmonds?

You’ll find several ways to visit us in Lynnwood, with a donation site and attached store just minutes from I-5, at the intersection of 99 and 196th St. (524), near Edmonds Community College and Central Washington University – Lynnwood. You’ll also find a Goodwill donation site right near scenic Martha Lake Park and the intersection of I-5 and 164th St. SW.

If you love thrifting, you know that Everett is a great place to shop (home to the Goodwill Everett Outlet and two Goodwill stores).  Our donation sites are located onsite at our two stores, so stop by our Everett South Donation Site near the intersection of Evergreen Way (525) and 99 or our Everett Downtown Donation Site on Hoyt Ave., just off of I-5’s exit 192.

Marysville is home to a Goodwill store and donation site, located near I-5’s exit 200, on old Highway 99 (State Ave).  Your donations help support Goodwill’s education and job training programs, including those offered at the Marysville Goodwill Job Training and Education Center, also located onsite.

Does your home lie even further north?  We’re there for you!  You’ll find our donation sites on Valley Mall Way near I-5 in Mount Vernon (along with our store and Job Training and Education Center), and in Anacortes and Monroe (convenient to state route 20 and Chain Lake Road—near Route 2, respectively).  The Monroe location also includes our store

Good news: you have donation opportunities almost all the way to the Canadian border! You’ll find our furthest north location in Bellingham, home to a donation site, store and Job Training and Education Center.

You endure a tough commute, so drop off your items and enjoy a relaxing evening—and thank you so much for taking the time to donate and support job training and educationStay tuned for tips on donation locations along other Seattle-area commuting routes.
