Raise money for the Boys & Girls Club with your Goodwill donations
The Excelsior Boys & Girls Clubhouse and Goodwill will kick off a new partnership on Saturday, January 28, 2012. On that morning, Goodwill trucks and staff will join volunteers from the Excelsior Boys & Girls Club and conduct a neighborhood donation drive. From 8 a.m. to noon, neighbors will be able to bring their donations to 163 London Street in San Francisco. Our teams hope to divert over 8,000 pounds of items from landfill on that day.
The volunteers from the Boys and Girls club will not only help donors unload their cars but are taking a leadership role in promoting the event throughout the neighborhood and their social media network. The event will not end on January 28. Over the next three weeks, students at the clubhouse will continue to collect books, CDs and videogames at the Excelsior Clubhouse. Many of these items will be sold through Goodwill’s E-commerce division at http://sfgoodwill.org/shop-online/ . A portion of those proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Excelsior Clubhouse.
Stay tuned for more on these, and other, collaborations!
