In these challenging times, we continue our commitment to individuals and families in our community and we are grateful for the support we have received from so many. Effective March 19, 2020, we are temporarily closing our stores and donation sites in Massachusetts until April 7. We will need your donations of clothing and household goods when we reopen so please hold onto them until then. Last year we served more than 6,300 people through job training, career services, and programs for young adults and we know the demand will be much greater in the months ahead. Please consider making a financial donation at to allow us to continue to deliver our critical mission services. We truly appreciate your continued commitment to Goodwill and the people we serve.

The Helms Society

Thanks to your generous support, Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries is able to help individuals with barriers to self-sufficiency to achieve independence and dignity through work.

Members of the Helms Society help continue the legacy of the Rev. Edgar J. Helms, who founded Goodwill in Boston’s South End in 1895 to provide those living in poverty “a hand up, not a hand out.”

When you join the Helms Society with a gift of $500 or more, you help support our life-changing programs. Just as important, you help build a legacy of caring that ensures Goodwill can continue to serve those who will turn to us in the future.
