The ShareFest 2019 Donation Drive which takes in the city of Oxford from May 15th through May 21st is a major donation drive event in partnership with Miami University, the City of Oxford and a host of human service agency partners. 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. For the fifth year, Ohio Valley Goodwill is pleased to be a major sponsor of the event. As a sponsor of the this year’s donation event, Goodwill will have four of its donation trailers prominently featured at the Chestnut Fields HQ in uptown Oxford.
At the end of the ShareFest donation drive, collected items are shared with local human service organizations and recycled responsibly as appropriate. This year’s beneficiary groups include: Butler County Success, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati, Oxford Community Choice Food Pantry, Open Hands Food Pantry, BCESC Success Program, Talawanda Social Work Team and Ohio Valley Goodwill.
“As a newer business in the Oxford community, Goodwill is very pleased to once again be the Donation Sponsor of the ShareFest Donation Drive for the fifth year in a row,” said Jeff Eastham, Operations Director. The Oxford Goodwill store is located at 203 South Locust Street (close to the new 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. During the ShareFest donation drive, the Goodwill donation center will be filled with the generous donations provided by students and community members.
