National Give Something Away Day: Give the Gift of a Smile Through Goodwill!

Did you know that July 15th is “National Give Something Away Day?” It’s a day to share with your neighbors and give back to your community, and Ohio Valley Goodwill is the perfect place to celebrate!

When you drop off a box of donated items at Goodwill, you might feel a little lighter. You might even leave with a smile on your face because you know your donation is making a difference for people and the planet. But the truth is, it’s not often that you’re able to see first-hand how your generosity helps someone else.

If you’ve ever wondered exactly how your Goodwill donations help others in your community, now’s your chance to find out:

Vocational Training and Job Support

Your donations support Goodwill’s mission to provide job training and employment support for individuals right here in the Greater Cincinnati community. That means your donation stays in the local area, helping people in your community go to work at a job that fits their interests and skills.
Ohio Valley Goodwill’s vocational services make it possible for individuals with disabilities, our nation’s veterans, and others to find a career path that’s right for them, gain the skills necessary to land a job, and find success in that career. By supporting Goodwill’s mission, you’re helping neighbors find fulfillment through employment and be fully included in their communities!

A Better Sense of Self

With your generous donations, Ohio Valley Goodwill is able to help hundreds of people along their career journey. But it’s about more than just getting a job. Achieving vocational success builds a sense of accomplishment, fulfillment, and self-confidence. Imagine if someone told you that by donating your box of old clothes or household goods, you could change someone’s life in such an amazing way. Well, you can, and you do — every time you donate to Goodwill!

Giving a Smile

Now that you know the power of your box of Goodwill donations, don’t think about your gift as just another errand. You’re giving the gift of a smile!
This year, for National Give Something Away Day, gather up those items you’re no longer using in your home, find a Goodwill Donation Center near you, and give a smile to a neighbor. We guarantee you’ll gain a smile of your own!
