Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries is pleased to announce that it’s newest Attended Donation Center located at 7773 Cincinnati-Dayton Road in the community of West Chester will open on Thursday, June 25th, 2015. This is the second Goodwill Donation Center in the West Chester area and is being offered to provide donors with another convenient drive-thru location with an attendant on duty. “We are so pleased that Goodwill is able to offer this new convenient donation site for our customers in the Butler County West Chester area and we appreciate their generous support of our very important mission,” said Jeff Eastham, Goodwill’s Operations Manager. Donations collected by Goodwill are sold in its network of 15 retail stores and provide the funding needed to help men and women with disabilities and our nation’s veterans get jobs in the community.
It might be of interest to Goodwill’s generous donors to know that when they choose to make a donation to Goodwill, they are not only supporting our mission of putting people to work in our community but also, recycling responsibly. Goodwill helps to recycle more than 45,000,000 lbs. of donated items every year, diverting it from area landfills. The organization is also a pioneer of the re-use and re-purpose movement in its on-going efforts to be a responsible environmental steward. Goodwill was pleased to be recognized for its commitment to re-use and recycling by Hamilton County Recycling and Waste Management last year.
Please note that Ohio Valley Goodwill is always in need of clean, usable clothing, shoes, household items including small electric appliances and kitchen items, children’s items, seasonal items, sporting goods, furniture and even auto donations! For customer convenience, Ohio Valley Goodwill handles all the paperwork to make vehicle donations as simple and easy as possible.
