Creative Upcycle Exchange

More ART. Less WASTE.

As good stewards of every item donated to Goodwill of the Southern Alleghenies we are proud to announce the formation of the Creative Upcycle Exchange (CUE). This new program will extend the lifecycle of unsold goods and industrial byproducts, redirecting materials out of the waste stream and into the hands of artists, crafters, DIYers, makers, and educators.

If you are an artist, a crafter, a DIYer, or a maker, CUE can supply materials
for all of your creative endeavors, plus:

  • Save you time and money, giving you more time to create
  • Provide opportunities to showcase your products and grow your brand thru Goodwills’ network of online and social media channels
  • Provide new channels of communication and collaboration with leaders in the Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle movement.

If you are an educator inspiring the next generation of creative thinkers,
we can help with:

  • Low-cost materials for cash-strapped school districts
  • Workshops highlighting recycling challenges/solutions
  • Recycling/environmental project kits customized to your curriculum

If you care about the health and sustainability of your community,
the Creative Upcycle Exchange will:

  • Help to reduce the environmental impact of our landfills
  • Provide tax savings for business partners who donate industrial waste
  • Provide Green Collar jobs for the growing eco-conscious marketplace

Online Shopping at Goodwill

Through the Shopgoodwill online auction site, you can experience a fun and exciting way to shop for specialty items such as one-of-a-kinds, collectibles, antiques, estate pieces, jewelry, nostalgic items, and more!

At Goodwill of the Southern Alleghenies, we know that our donors value their donations to Goodwill and want us to get the maximum value possible to support our mission. Listing these items on Shopgoodwill allows us to generate more revenue because these items go to the highest bidders who know the values of the items.

Donors can be sure that the revenue generated from the sale of their donated items on will support job training and employment services for people in their community – just as it does through purchases made in our 10 Goodwill Retail Stores.
