January 29th marked the official kick-off of planning meetings in preparation for the ShareFest 2018 Donation Drive. Ohio Valley Goodwill is pleased to be a major sponsor of the annual ShareFest Donation Drive held in partnership with the City of Oxford, Miami University and many local organizations. Taking place May 16th-22nd this year, the ShareFest 2018 donation event is promising once again to be a major community event which will not only help to responsibly recycle donated items but also, to benefit local charity partners. As a major sponsor of the annual ShareFest Donation Drive, three of Goodwill’s donation trailers will be positioned at the Chestnut Fields parking lot in central Oxford.
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.
“As a business partner in the Oxford community, Ohio Valley Goodwill is pleased to once again be a sponsor and supporter of the ShareFest donation event,” said Jeff Eastham, Operations Director. 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 has been well received by the community. The Oxford Goodwill store also features a drive-thru donation center for the convenience of local donors. For directions, visit goodwillbargains.com and Shop Goodwill Today!
