Give Thanks and Give Back with Goodwill

As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, we’re all encouraged to slow down, express our gratitude, and give back to help those in need. One way you can help people living in your community is by supporting Ohio Valley Goodwill and our mission to change lives through the power of work. With your support, Goodwill makes a lasting impact on those we serve right here in the local community, including individuals with disabilities and our nation’s veterans. If you’re looking for ways to give back this Thanksgiving, we invite you to support Ohio Valley Goodwill by donating, shopping, or volunteering. Here’s how you can join Goodwill in making a difference this Thanksgiving:

Donate
As you prepare for the busy holidays ahead, consider donating any items that have outgrown your home this year. We’ll gladly accept your donations of clothing, furniture, and other household goods, which we transform into funding for job training and employment services for people living in our community. You will enjoy having a cleaner, more organized home before the holidays, and your good deed will have a lasting impact. Do you need to make some room in your home before the holidays? Find your nearest donation site.
