Even though it’s still mid-summer, back-to-school time is fast approaching! The good news is that there are some fun and easy ways to get ready this year. Make a rainy day, a “try-on” day and figure out what items your kids may have outgrown. Help them separate out into piles, the clothing they want to keep and the other things that may not fit anymore. This creates a perfect “teaching” moment as you and your children talk about how donating items that no longer fit can help people in our community. Drop off the “Donate” items with your child at any convenient Greater Cincinnati Goodwill donation center and feel good about not only de-cluttering your closets but also, helping others… it’s a good thing! The best part is that by donating to Goodwill, you are helping your child to learn to recycle responsibly as well – all good lessons as we prepare for a new school year. By cleaning out your closets, you are now ready for the always exciting adventure of “Back-to-School” shopping! Fortunately, once again, Goodwill can help! With an ever-changing assortment of the latest hot looks, trendy book bags and funky accessories, your local Goodwill can help you with school shopping for less!

Join thoughtful parents throughout the Tri-State this school year in helping their kids clean out their closets and learn about the importance of donating to help others. For the past 97 years, Ohio Valley Goodwill has been helping individuals with disabilities and our nation’s veterans go to work thanks to generous community support. Donate to Goodwill today!
