Girl Scouts and Goodwill Launch Annual “Good Turn” Donation Drive

Once again this fall, Goodwill is partnering with Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont to offer A Good Turn for Goodwill, an annual donation drive collaboration that teaches girls the importance of volunteering.

Each year, local Girl Scout troops collect thousands of pounds of donations for Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina, as well as Goodwill Industries of Central NC and Goodwill of the Southern Piedmont. Troops are encouraged to tour Goodwill retail stores to learn first-hand how their donations will be sold to support Goodwill’s employment and training programs. Participating Girl Scouts earn the Good Turn patch.

To schedule a tour of one of Goodwill Industries of Northwest NC’s stores or career centers, contact Vanessa Miller at (336) 724-3625 x1391 or vmiller@goodwillnwnc.org. Click here to view all of our store locations and operating hours.

The items that Goodwill needs most are clothing, shoes, home décor, linens, small appliances, books, DVDs and electronics. Learn more about donation guidelines here.
