A Great Way to Give Back
Whether you’re representing a business, school, club, university, faith-based congregation or neighborhood association, your organization can host a Goodwill donation drive. Many organizations decide to have donation drives to collect specific items, such as a clothing or shoes. Companies may sponsor donation drives, which is a great way to get employees energized and united about giving back to a great cause. Goodwill works with many local elementary and high schools that host donation drives. They can donate clothing, shoes, accessories and even textbooks. Also, campus organizations such as sororities, fraternities or student government associations can sponsor donation drives. City municipalities and county government often sponsor community recycle events, and Goodwill works closely with them to ensure these events run smoothly.
Some groups use community garage sales as a way to raise funds for themselves and then partner with Goodwill Industries of Northwest Ohio, Inc. to come in at the end to collect the “leftovers.” We’re happy to do so!
