Goodwill is launching a new express donation site in the Herndon area.

The drop-off site is expected to officially open in the Village Center at Dulles sometime this month, according to Brendan Hurley, a spokesperson for Goodwill of Great Washington & The Goodwill Excel Center.

Goodwill’s existing retail store in the shopping center will remain at its current location.

Hurley told FFXnow that the new location is more convenient and easily accessible, since it’s right off Centreville Road and provides easier ingress and egress for donors.

“The location will also…include a drive through canopy under which donors can make donations without stepping out into the uncontrollable and often inconvenient weather conditions,” Hurley wrote in a statement.

Donations accepted at the new site include household goods, electronics and apparel, which are then resold to the nonprofit organization. The center will operate as a goods distribution hub and provide short-term storage for donations.

The donation center is located at 2545 Centreville Road in suite Q18. Donations will be transported to the Goodwill in the same general plaza (2421 Centreville Road).
