RGI serves our region through employment assistance at the Goodwill Job Help Centers, a commercial laundry, off-site custodial and administrative services, outsourcing and contract services, Goodwill stores, an outlet, and numerous attended donation centers.

Last year, Rappahannock Goodwill Industries provided assistance to more than 3,300 people and contributed nearly $26 million directly to the region’s economy with an economic impact of over $50 million. RGI is able to help those who need it most thanks to donations of gently used items that are sold in the Goodwill stores, funds from commercial services operations, and financial contributions.
