Doing Good is Good For Business.
Don’t Let a Useful Product Go to Waste.
When you have excess merchandise, disposal in a landfill might seem like the only efficient option. That doesn’t help your business. It doesn’t help the environment. And, most importantly, it’s a missed opportunity for you to help people in our community.
Goods Bank NEO offers an easy alternative that helps your business, helps the environment and helps people in need and the nonprofit organizations that serve them. Donate items you manufacture and sell, surplus you keep for operational use, promotional merchandise, or the results of your employee charity drives. We find homes for your new, excess merchandise with nonprofits, schools and faith-based organizations that use the items directly or provide them free-of-charge to people in need.
What to Give
If you have new items to give, even your swag, we know an organization or people in need. Some of the most requested items include the following:
- Cleaning supplies
- Feminine hygiene products
- Office and school supplies
- Infant/baby supplies
- Computers and electronics

How to Give
It can be challenging to donate your new excess, overstock, seasonal, discontinued and returned merchandise, despite your best intentions. It’s hard to know which organizations need what and have an efficient way to manage distribution. It’s even more challenging to track compliance and impact.
We can help.
Partnering with Goods Bank NEO helps you overcome these hurdles so you can focus on giving thoughtfully with the greatest impact.
