Customers who want to donate items to charity need only head to their local Post Office.

More than a dozen online retailers have partnered with Give Back Box, a national program that allows individuals to donate gently used items to Goodwill.

Here’s how the program works:

  • Customers receive their orders from a participating online retailer and fill the shipping box with clothing, accessories and non-electronic household goods.
  • The customers then print a free, prepaid shipping label from and schedule a pickup from USPS or take their package to their local Post Office.

USPS follows the regular acceptance procedures for prepaid acceptance packages. Donations go through regular distribution operations and are delivered to local Goodwill locations.

Employees with questions about USPS prepaid acceptance procedures should contact their district’s retail office.
