Ohio Valley Goodwill was a major sponsor of the recent ShareFest donation drive which took place May 11th-17th, which resulted in a record amount of donations for Goodwill as well as the other non-profit partners. Donated items are now being sold in the new store; the proceeds of which will be used to support the organization’s century-long mission of helping people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans to get jobs and achieve personal success.

Located in the heart of the bustling Oxford business district, the almost 11,000 square feet store features a retail store and convenient drive-thru donation center. The store actually opened for business on May 5th and has been well received by the local community. The contemporary new store features a convenient drive-thru donation area, large dressing rooms, wide aisles and a fun atmosphere all designed to make for an enjoyable shopping experience. The Oxford Goodwill store represents the 17th retail store in the organization’s network of retail locations and 32nd drive thru donation center. Ten full-time employees will be employed at the Oxford store.

The Grand Opening of the Oxford store location is especially momentous as it takes place during the 100th anniversary celebration of Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries this year. For the past century, Goodwill has been helping people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans to receive skill training and employment in the Greater Cincinnati community as well as Butler County. The organization recently received its fifth consecutive perfect survey outcome from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), which reflects the “Gold” standard in excellence for agencies like Ohio Valley Goodwill.

Last year, Ohio Valley Goodwill served more than 3500 people and helped 919 to get jobs in the community. Revenues generated through Goodwill’s network of 17 retail stores helps to support this vital mission of service. Ohio Valley Goodwill is pleased to be joining the Oxford business community and thanks everyone for their warm welcome and support!
