3 Ways to Warm Hearts this Holiday Season

“˜Tis the season to bundle up! We’ve hauled out the gloves, mittens, hats, and coats to ward off the cold, but what are we doing to warm ourselves from the inside out?

Ohio Valley Goodwill has a few suggestions for keeping your heart toasty while doing the same for others this holiday season.

#1: Donate Household Goods

It doesn’t take much effort to spark a holiday glow in those around you. The simple act of donating things you no longer use to Ohio Valley Goodwill fuels year-round services for those facing barriers to unemployment.

All you have to do is pack up household items you don’t need, find your nearest Goodwill Donation Center, and drive through!

#2: Support Goodwill’s Mission

Find yourself without items to donate? You can still make a difference in the lives of others! Ohio Valley Goodwill accepts financial donations, which also help support important services for individuals with disabilities and our nation’s veterans.

Last year, with the support of our donors, Ohio Valley Goodwill served nearly 3,000 individuals. That’s a lot of good!

#3: Spread the word

Remember the last time you posted your #GoodwillFinds social media or mentioned to a friend how you got a great deal at an Ohio Valley Goodwill retail store? Or maybe you popped into a conversation about job skills to say that it’s part of Goodwill’s mission to provide those skills to individuals with disabilities? You might not have realized it at the time, but you boosted the Goodwill mission just by sharing with friends! Giving voice to good is a powerful way to help those around you.

Keep the Cycle of Goodness in Motion with Goodwill!
