Help Your School Win a $500 Scholarship

Each week during football season, two area high schools compete to see which can collect the most donations for Goodwill Industries of Northwest Ohio.

How It Works

It’s time for the Goodwill “Pass it on Challenge” brought to you by 13abc! The “Goodwill Pass it on Challenge” is a friendly competition each week between two local high schools that battle off the field in a donation drive benefiting Goodwill Industries of Northwest Ohio.   The proceeds from these donations help fund job training and job placement for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment.  Lee Conklin promotes the Challenge on Friday Night Football.

There will not be a trailer at the schools this year.  Instead, Goodwill will designate locations convenient to each school where supporters can drop off their donations.  Clothing, household items and furniture donations will be collected beginning the week prior to the game from Saturday through Thursday.  Each school will have a specific donation location and hours that will be clearly posted in the school, at the stores, at the donations stations, and on social media platforms @GoodwillNow and #passitonchallenge.  Receipts for the tax-deductible donation will also be available for donors.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!  Show your schools Pass It On Challenge spirit via social media (FB, Insta & Twitter)!  Each photo submitted to your own social media networks with Goodwill tagged @GoodwillNow will earn 20 pounds!  Students, faculty and parents can simply upload photos of them boxing/bagging up donations or dropping off donations at their designated location.  These photos will help promote your donation drive.

The school that has collected the most weight from donors by game day will be announced as the winner of that week’s challenge.  Goodwill and 13abc will provide the winning school with a $500 scholarship and the runner-up will receive a $250 scholarship!
