"WCPO TV Covers Biggest Donation Day of the Year!"

The last day of December is always a big day for Ohio Valley Goodwill and its donation centers. Hundreds of cars are lined up throughout the day, waiting their turn to drop off their last-minute donations before the start of the New Year. WCPO reporter Tony Mirones, was on-hand once again this year, to view all of the activitity in progress. While many donors are there to collect their receipts for an end-of-the-year tax deduction, others are just working hard to simplify and down-size their life-style. WCPO talked to many of this year’s last minute donors to find out why they picked the last day of the year to donate. Click here to view the story. Woodlawn Store Manager Krysta Ryan was on hand to describe the donation frenzy from Goodwill’s point of view. “We are delighted that our donors make Goodwill a priority on the last day of the year,” said Ryan. “Donations benefit our mission of service throughout the year,” added Ryan. Ohio Valley Goodwill uses the proceeds from the sale of generously donated items to fund its employment and training programs for men and women with disabilities and our nation’s veterans. Annually, the organization serves more than 2400 individuals and helps almost 700 to obtain jobs in the community. Goodwill is grateful to WCPO TV for their coverage of this important New Year story.
