Washington, D.C. – Goodwill® of Greater Washington (Goodwill) will be opening its 22nd retail store and donation center in the Guilford Station Shopping Center near the intersection of SR28 and West Church Road in Sterling, Virginia.
The new location will serve residents of eastern Loudoun County, and increase Goodwill’s presence in the region along with its existing store located at 22405 Enterprise Street in Sterling, Virginia.
The 18,000-square-foot store and donation center will create between 30 and 50 new jobs and Goodwill hopes to open the new location by the end of 2023. The site will provide an outlet for residents to support Goodwill’s mission to offer free job training, education, and supportive services to people facing barriers to employment.
Donating and shopping at Goodwill also helps protect our environment. In 2021, donations to Goodwill of Greater Washington kept 37 million pounds of material out of area landfills. Additionally, Goodwill stores now accept donations of plastic film that is recycled and reused in Trex composite decking products, expanding Goodwill’s growing sustainability efforts.
Goodwill presently offers free job training in hospitality services, and energy & construction. The agency also operates two adult charter high school campuses called The Goodwill Excel Center – the only adult public charter high school serving DC residents that awards a high school diploma rather than a GED.
