Friday, May 6th marked the beginning of the two-day Spring Mini-Fest event sponsored by Ohio Valley Goodwill’s volunteer Service Guild, held at the organization’s corporate headquarters in the village of Woodlawn. The annual event is planned and coordinated by the Guild as one of their official fund-raisers in support of Ohio Valley Goodwill and its mission of service to individuals with disabilities and our nation’s veterans. This year’s Spring Mini-Fest featured homemade baked goods, “Elegant Junque” and collectibles, blood pressure screening by the Woodlawn Fire Department and flowers from the Mt. Healthy Garden Club- just in time for Mother’s Day! The Spring Mini-Fest also features a Grill-Out lunch with hot dogs, chips and drinks for visitors to enjoy while they take a break from shopping. The timing for this year’s Mini-Fest could not have been more appropriate because it signaled the 1st-ever “Goodwill Spring Clean-Out Day” event on Saturday, May 7th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, sponsored by Clear Channel Communications and WLWT-News 5. “We are delighted that the Guild’s Spring Mini-Fest and the “Spring Clean-Out Day” event overlapped in such a positive way,” said Nancy Horton, Guild President. “Hosting both events during the annual celebration of National Goodwill Week really brought attention to how important it is to support Goodwill’s vital work through both shopping and donating,” added Horton. Ohio Valley Goodwill is grateful to all the members of the Service Guild for their tireless devotion to the organization’s mission of helping people to achieve economic self-sufficiency and personal success. The Guild is made up of 100 volunteers who are committed to increasing awareness of Goodwill’s mission in the community and raising funds in support of its efforts.
