Cure Cabin Fever This Winter With Help From Goodwill!

With cold winter weather on its way, we’re all spending more time indoors. If your family is experiencing a little cabin fever this time of year, you might be looking for ways to avoid winter boredom and stay entertained. Ohio Valley Goodwill is here to help! Here are a few activities to try with help from Goodwill:

Pass the time with fun family games

When you’re stuck indoors, board games and puzzles are a great way to pass the time and enjoy a little friendly competition. Check out the selection at your local Ohio Valley Goodwill store or shop online at to find amazing deals on games and puzzles.

Try a new craft project

Winter is a perfect time to try your hand at a creative project and Ohio Valley Goodwill is the place to find the supplies you need at inexpensive prices. Shop at Goodwill to find common craft supplies such as glass vases, mason jars, or fabric. You can also creatively upcycle Goodwill finds such as furniture or home décor by adding a fresh coat of paint or stain.

Stock up on video games, DVDs, and more!

Ohio Valley Goodwill makes it easier to keep your children entertained on snow days with our selection of video games, DVDs, and CDs. Shop at Goodwill to find a variety of entertainment options for the entire family at some of the best prices around.

Find a great book

Start your spring cleaning early

One way to beat the winter blues is to get a head start on your spring cleaning! If you’re already stuck inside, take advantage of the opportunity to clear out your closets and storage spaces of any items you no longer want, need, or use. Have your children help you sort items into piles to keep, throw away, or donate. When you’re ready, corral the items you want to donate into a bag or box and then put them in the car for your next trip to Goodwill. Your donated items will be sorted and resold in our retail stores, where they’ll be given a second life by someone who needs them. Proceeds from the sale of your donated items will go on to support Ohio Valley Goodwill’s vocational programs and employment services for individuals with disabilities and our nation’s veterans. Find a donation center near you.
