Hi Ananda. One of the benefits of working with Good360 is the fact that we can handle scale and significant volumes. We have our own storage and processing facilities and we have a network of vetted and approved nonprofits around the country who also help with organization and distribution. It's one of the unique things about our model. Donors are absolutely right to vet the capabilities of partners in order to understand whether they are a good fit or not.
Thanks for all of the thoughtful and insightful comments, and for the general support of the concept of donating goods. Aside from the various business benefits that were outlined in the piece and in the comments, it's important to remember how important donations are in this moment with more than 40 million Americans out of work. While the demand began with PPE (and continues!), we are now seeing a significant increase in demand for a wide variety of personal and home goods as COVID-19 evolves from a health crisis to a full-blown economic crisis.
