Host a Goodwill Donation Drive to Make a Difference
Donation drives are great community service projects for corporations, schools, churches, and community organizations. They are an easy opportunity to give back to the community while clearing out the clutter and keeping things out of local landfills.
A Goodwill employee will work with you to help organize your event, create marketing materials, as well as schedule the pick-up of your donations. Goodwill can provide temporary donation bins and bring an attended donation truck to help handle your donations and issue donation receipts.
To help you plan your event, Goodwill has created a Donation Drive Tool Kit that includes general information on how to host a donation drive, a timeline, announcement ideas, and a sample flyer that will be adjusted to fit your individual event.
You can download the Donation Drive Tool Kit here.
For more information on planning a donation drive, please call Kelly Coleman, Senior Director, Marketing and Community Relations, at (540) 581-0620 ext. 107 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
School Donation Drives
Hosting a donation drive at your school is a great opportunity to educate students about the importance of recycling and giving back to people in their community. During the week-long donation drive, students are encouraged to bring gently used donations to school. All donations support Goodwill stores and programs in our community.
Business Donation Drives
Companies may sponsor donation drives targeting employees and the public when applicable. We will provide temporary donation bins and/or bring an attended donation truck to your business giving your interested parties a convenient opportunity to donate.
Organization Donation Drives
Whether you’re representing a club, church, or other organization, you can also can host a Goodwill donation drive. Some organizations decide to have drives to collect only one particular item, such as a coats or shoes.
Goodwill works with many local colleges and universities to have donation drives. These drives are normally held at the end of a semester when students are preparing to move out. They can donate clothing, shoes, accessories and even text books. Also, campus organizations such as sororities, fraternities or the student government association can sponsor these donation drives.
