Goodwill Partners with Resupply to Offer Home Pickup Service in Central Florida

Donating home goods and furniture in Central Florida just became easier thanks to a new partnership between Goodwill Industries of Central Florida (GICF) and Resupply.




Resupply is a veteran-owned and operated company that provides pickup services for furniture, appliances and other home goods. Interested donors pay a small fee for Resupply haulers to come to their home, remove items they wish to donate and deliver them to a local Goodwill. Any items not selected by Goodwill will be brought to other local charities.

“We’re always looking for ways to make the donation process easier and more accessible for our community,” said Ed Durkee, president and CEO at GICF. “Not only does this service do all the heavy lifting – literally – for our donors, but it also provides jobs for veterans trying to re-integrate into the civilian workforce. Goodwill is proud to partner with Resupply to make the donation of larger household items easier and support our military members in the process.”

Resupply has helped hundreds of veterans transition from active duty to civilian life. With GICF’s participation, 80 of the 154 Goodwill organizations across the country now partner with ReSupply to offer this service.

Over seven years, Resupply has created more than $20 million in value for charities through donations from 150,000 households and more than 25 million pounds of material saved from landfills.

“We’re proud to deepen our relationship with Goodwill Industries, and to provide a priority donation pickup experience to Goodwill’s donors throughout Central Florida,” said Paul Tocci, Co-Founder and CEO, Resupply. “The vision of Resupply is to revolutionize charitable giving in America. Every day, we strive to make giving ‘simple’ and to provide the most convenient donation experience possible. It is an honor to partner with one of the most influential charities in the country, and we look forward to providing a new avenue for donors to support the incredible mission of Goodwill Industries of Central Florida.”

Goodwill also offers veterans comprehensive training opportunities to assist those with disabling conditions, homelessness or other special needs to develop employability skills for the workforce and become self-sufficient again.

To schedule a Resupply pickup, call (407) 857-0659 and select the “Donation Pickup” option, or visit  Goodwill Central Florida online.

Through 31 retail/outlet stores and 16 Donation Xpress locations in Orange County, Seminole County, Osceola County, Brevard County, Lake County and Volusia County, Goodwill diverted nearly 24 million pounds of clothing and household items from landfills in 2023. Goodwill Industries of Central Florida directly channels more than 90 percent of its annual revenue into programs that enable individuals to secure meaningful employment, achieve their personal goals and thrive economically.
