Goodwill Teams With Scouts For Good Turn Day

Presented By Hometown-Motors, Inc.

Scouts across Ohio will be teaming with Goodwill Industries for the Spring Good Turn Day on March 20th.

All nine of Goodwill of South Central Ohio stores will participate in the annual event. Good Turn Day is an opportunity for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts to do a “good turn” in their community by collecting used clothing, housewares and books to donate to Goodwill.

“We’re excited to participate in Good Turn Day again, and we appreciate what the Scouts do for Goodwill”, said Goodwill of South Central Ohio CEO Marvin Jones . “The scouts efforts will help Goodwill with its mission as a nonprofit organization to partner with individuals with disabilities and challenges to help them lead the lives they envision across our 8-county region.”

Stores in the region have awarded about 400 patches over the last four Good Turn Days. Scouts earn a patch by donating a large trash bag of items or volunteering for an hour in one of the stores.

Limited volunteering will be available at the stores on March 20th except the McArthur store and Zane Plaza store in Chillicothe.

Scouts wanting to volunteer must schedule a time by emailing jona.ison@gwisco.org or by calling (740) 702-4000- extension 135 no later than March 18th.

Donations for Good Turn Day can be dropped off anytime during business hours March 20th at stores in Athens, Chillicothe, Circleville, Jackson, Logan, McArthur, Washington CH and Waverly and at their donation center in South Bloomfield.
