Ohio Valley Goodwill was pleased to partner with OneCity For Recovery on a first time Clothing Donation Drive on Saturday, October 21st on the site of Crossroads Mason Church. OneCity Executive Director, Kristie Hart, was on hand to help coordinate the event along with Goodwill’s Donation Asst. Supervisor Lachlan Huck and Marketing Director, Sharon Hannon. Thanks to the generous support of local residents, more than 2500 pounds of donated items were collected including clothing and housewares.
“We are so grateful to the Mason Crossroads Church and the Greater Mason community for their wonderful support of this first-time Clothing Donation Drive,” said Kristie Hart, OneCity For Recovery Executive Director. “Goodwill and OneCity For Recovery work together to support the Hopeline which allows individuals struggling with recovery to obtain clothing vouchers to help them get back on their feet,” explained Hart. As a longtime proponent of workforce development and helping people to get jobs, Goodwill recognizes the urgency of the heroin crisis and its impact on peoples’ ability to obtain employment. As a result, Goodwill was pleased to help support OneCity for Recovery’s mission of helping people to get back in the workforce.
Ohio Valley Goodwill and OneCity For Recovery have worked collaboratively on their shared mission of helping people attain self-sufficiency since 2019 and are excited about the success of this first time clothing drive.
