On Nov. 7, scouts across Ohio will be visiting Goodwill stores to earn a special patch for the fall Good Turn Day.
All 10 of the Goodwill of South Central Ohio stores will participate in the special event. The idea of Good Turn Day is to provide Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts an opportunity to do a “good turn” in their community by collecting used clothing, books, housewares, and other items to donate to Goodwill.
“We’re excited to participate in Good Turn Day again, and we appreciate what the scouts do for Goodwill,” said Goodwill of South Central Ohio CEO Marvin Jones. “The scouts’ efforts will help Goodwill with its mission as a nonprofit organization to improve the quality of life and job opportunities for those with disabilities and disadvantages across our eight-county region.”
During the November 2019 Good Turn Day, our stores awarded more than 100 Good Turn Day patches. Scouts earn a patch by donating a large trash bag (or equivalent) of items. Typically, scouts can choose volunteer at a store instead of making a donation, but our stores are not offering volunteer opportunities at this time due to the pandemic.
Donations for Good Turn Day may be dropped off anytime during business hours Nov. 7 at our stores in Athens, Chillicothe, Circleville, Jackson, Logan, McArthur, South Bloomfield, Washington Court House, and Waverly. A list of store locations and hours can be found at www.GWISCO.org/stores.
