Good Turn Day
Nov. 1 – 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Scouts do a ‘good turn’ for the community by collecting used clothing, books, housewares, and other items to be donated to Goodwill or by volunteering their time at a donation site. To recognize doing a good turn in these neighborhood service projects, scouts earn a patch.

The items collected are sold in Goodwill’s retail stores to support its mission of helping individuals prepare for, find, and retain employment.  “The event creates a wonderful triple play,” said Nancy Ellis McClenaghan, President and CEO. “It gives individuals a way to pass along items they don’t need or want without harming the environment. It also helps the scouts learn firsthand about service.  The money raised by selling the donations after Good Turn Day, supports individuals in need of employment assistance and enhances the local economy.”

For more information about Good Turn Day, contact Heather Schaefer, volunteer services coordinator, at: hschaefer@goodwillakron.org or 330-724-6995 ext. 426.
