Northwest Center and Value Village

A Vital Partnership Since 1967

Value Village founder William Ellison approached Northwest Center just two years after our founding, proposing a unique partnership that has been a vital funding source for our services ever since. Our partnership with Value Village has helped Northwest Center grow into a force for social change.

Benefitting Northwest Center

When you donate clothes and household goods to The Big Blue Truck™ and at select Value Village stores, Value Village pays Northwest Center for those goods. The revenue we receive funds our services for kids and adults with disabilities.

Employing People with Disabilities

Value Village employs an inclusive workforce that includes Northwest Center clients with disabilities.

Reusing and Recycling

Together, Value Village and Northwest Center keep more than 17 million pounds of recyclable goods out of landfills every year.
