GOODWILL SUMMER DONATION DRIVE TAKES PLACE JUNE 23 to JULY 6
Donations support non-profit's mission to help people find better jobs and build careers
SAN ANTONIO, TX (June 23, 2014) – The summer season is the perfect time to make room for new gear by donating used goods to your neighborhood Goodwill store.
At Goodwill, donations of household items help create a better future for families in our community. That's why Goodwill is asking for donations during its Summer Donation Drive between Monday, June 23 and Sunday, July 6.
Items currently in high demand include home decor, house wares, books, furniture, toys, small appliances and computers.
“When you shop at or donate to Goodwill, you’re funding educational programs and services that assist people in finding better jobs and building careers,” said Penny Benavidez, Goodwill spokeswoman.
Together with the support of our generous community, partners and employers, Goodwill provides employment, training, educational opportunities and related services to more than 53,000 individuals each year.
Donating items to Goodwill is also good for the environment. Last year alone, Goodwill recycled more than 11 million pounds of household items, including nearly 2 million of hazardous computer e-waste that was responsibly recycled.
All donors receive a receipt for tax purposes. For more information or to find your nearest Donation Station, visit www.goodwillsa.org or call 210-924-8581.
