boy back to school cute!Ohio Valley Goodwill is encouraging residents of Greater Cincinnati to pull off the rare quadruple play this summer! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4:

  1. Donate last year’s school clothes to Goodwill.
  2. Pick up some fresh threads for the upcoming school year.
  3. Keep your wallet happy by not spending a lot.
  4. Help create a job for someone in your community.

” Summer is the time of year for getting the most things accomplished with the fewest moves,” said Ann Walters, Goodwill Sales Manager. ” And when it comes to back-to-school shopping, you can get four things done with just one simple step “” making a trip to our Goodwill stores.”

Start out by going through your closet and dresser drawers and look for items you no longer need. Gather that stuff and take it to Goodwill. Then, after you’ve dropped off your donation, take a few minutes to do some back-to-school shopping. If you haven’t shopped at a Goodwill store in a while, you might be surprised at some of the great bargains and cool clothes you can find.

At the checkout, , you’ll realize your wallet didn’t take the hit it usually does during back-to-school shopping “” saving you cash for more important things.  You’ll also realize that your acts of donation and purchasing have helped out the Greater Cincinnati community in the process. That’s because the money raised through the sale of donated goods goes to fund Goodwill’s main mission “” providing job-training and career services to help people gain work skills, earn employment and achieve personal success.

For almost a century, Ohio Valley Goodwill has been meeting the needs of job seekers with programs for youth, veterans and those with specialized needs. It all stems from Goodwill’s belief in the power of work to enhance the dignity and quality of life for individuals and families “”  and it all starts when you donate items that can be sold in our retail stores. So, join Ohio Valley Goodwill this back-to-school shopping season in Four for One: Donate, Purchase, Save and Create.
