Nick and Heidi at Goodwill Donation Trailer for 2021 ShareFest event

Thursday, May 13th, marked the official kick-off of the 2021 ShareFest Donation Drive in partnership with the city of Oxford and Miami University. Being held May 13th  through Wednesday, May 19th, Ohio Valley Goodwill is pleased to once again be the official Donation sponsor of the annual ShareFest Donation Drive. As always, the ShareFest event is a major community endeavor which enables students to drop off donations responsibly to support local non-profit organizations during campus move-out time. As a major sponsor of the annual ShareFest Donation Drive, three of Goodwill’s donation trailers are positioned at donation central at the Chestnut Fields HQ. Due to on-going safety precautions related to COVID-19, there are no off-campus pick-ups but already, students and community members have been generously dropping off donations on a regular basis.

Goodwill Marketing Team members, Sharon Hannon and Alisha Moore, were on hand to broadcast directly from the ShareFest site.

The mission of ShareFest is as a service and environmental nonprofit corporation dedicated to the collection and redistribution of items donated by Miami University students and the Oxford community at the end of the academic year. Collected items are shared with local human service organizations and recycled responsibly as appropriate.

” Goodwill is so pleased to see the participation of the Miami University students as they move out this year,” said Heidi Punghorst, Donations Supervisor. “This is the 5th year Goodwill has been the Donation Sponsor of this important event which is designed to help students to choose to recycle responsibly and promote Sustainability,” added Punghorst.   The organization’s Oxford Goodwill store is located at 203 South Locust Street (close to the Oxford library) and offers a selection of fashion items, books and collectibles and is a popular shopping location for Oxford residents as well as Miami University students. The Oxford Goodwill store also features a drive-thru donation center for the convenience of local donors.

Ohio Valley Goodwill is honored to be a major sponsor of the 2021 event and to work in partnership with Miami University and the City of Oxford. You can join the Oxford community in choosing to recycle responsibly by donating today to your local Goodwill.
