Under bright sunny skies, Ohio Valley Goodwill in partnership with WLWT News 5 and Clear Channel Communications, held it’s first-ever Spring Clean-Out Day on Saturday, May 7th at the organization’s Tri-County headquarters. Joining in the special event were radio stations 700 WLW, 55KRC, KISS 107 and WEBN all helping to draw attention to Goodwill’s mission to serve men and women with disabilities, homeless veterans and others facing barriers to employment. “The real purpose of the event was to call out Goodwill’s need for donations and to offer an easy way for donors to bring in their contributions,” said George Palmer, Goodwill’s Director of PR and Marketing. “We were so pleased when News 5 and Clear Channel came to us and proposed the Clean-Out Day as a way to increase donations and a means to draw attention to Goodwill’s mission,” mentioned Palmer. Along with the radio stations which all took turns broadcasting live during the 9:00 am to 1:00 pm special event at Goodwill’s headquarters, Gold Star Chili served up cheese coneys, Husman’s offered potato chips and Pepsi gave out free drinks to event participants. Ohio Valley Goodwill’s partner, “College Hunks Hauling” service even showed up to the event to promote their supported service for donors who might like to use the paid service for donations that might be too large to be dropped off and may need to be hauled by the service. The event proved to be fun and helped Goodwill at a time when donations are needed. Ohio Valley Goodwill thanks WLWT News 5 and Clear Channel Communications for helping to support its mission to put people to work and the Greater Cincinnati community for its continued support.
