Do you donate to the Goodwill?

I was talking to somebody about taking some of my dd's clothes from last winter to the good will, they said I should never donate to a company that makes a profit from donations and the poor. I never thought of that. They do provide jobs though... 

So do you donate to the Goodwill?

 No I don't. I do a yard sale each spring and sell their old clothes/toys. We make out pretty good each time.

Aren't they a non profit? I usually don't because there is another donation bin closer to my house.

No. I give my things to people who can use them, for free. No need of a middle man who's going to charge them.

Sometimes. Anything that's in good condition I take to the shelter or consign.
