Past event

Join us for a chat with Nordsense customer Goodwill Industries of Kanawha Valley, Inc. and discover how data is helping them and other clothing bank operators become more sustainable and resource efficient.


Charitable organizations across the globe use clothing banks to collect unwanted clothing and resell it in thrift stores to raise funds for non-profit projects. But many organizations are facing revenue and inventory issues due to overflowing bins and contaminated donations.

In this webinar, we’ll be discussing the benefits of data-driven clothing bank operations together with Kassia Lilly, Vice President of Operations at Goodwill Industries of Kanawha Valley, Inc. (GIKV) one of 161 independent Goodwill agencies in North America. We’ll also be sharing insights from our other projects with clothing banks.


This webinar will provide you with:

  • Key learnings from GIKV and how they have improved resource efficiency and inventory flow from their donation bins.
  • Action points on how to use smart sensor data to optimize collection routes so you can avoid unnecessary pickups to empty containers while tackling overflowing bins, and contaminated donations.
  • Insights on how data can help you reduce your carbon emissions and transition to more sustainable operations.


This webinar is aimed at charity and non-profit organizations with clothing banks and donation bins.

The session will be hosted online via Zoom. You will receive more information and a link by email when you register. Participants will receive a recording after the webinar.
