- About Us
Celebrating the organization’s 8th year as the official donation partner with the annual Thanksgiving Day Race, Ohio Valley Goodwill is looking forward to the 2017 event. This year, the Goodwill Donation Station will be prominently headquartered at Paul Brown Stadium and the organization’s enthusiastic volunteers will be on hand to accept generous donations. To add to the excitement of this year’s Thanksgiving Day Race, Goodwill will also present its popular Entertainment Station at Mile 2 featuring long-time volunteer and local musician, Mark Macomber.
Thanks to the generous donations of Thanksgiving Day runners, the annual Goodwill Coat Drive has become one of the most successful in the country. When people donate to Goodwill, they are helping people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans go to work in our community. Last year alone, Ohio Valley Goodwill provided employment and training services to more than 3,500 people and helped more than 1000 to get jobs in the Greater Cincinnati area.
Over the past seven years of the partnership, Ohio Valley Goodwill has collected more than 30,000 pounds of cold weather running gear and coats from the generous participants in the annual Thanksgiving Day Race. Ohio Valley Goodwill is proud to be the official Donation partner of the 2017 Thanksgiving Day Race. Look for the Goodwill Donation truck at the start of the Race at Paul Brown Stadium and bring a coat to share. Your generous donations help put people to work in our community and Goodwill is thankful for your support.
