For our Pack 3387’s Goodwill Drive this Saturday October 29th, we have had a couple further questions regarding items to donate, or items that Goodwill cannot accept. I’ve included a list (& link) from Goodwill below. Again, if the Cub Scout can bring “three bags” of donated items or volunteer and help load the trailer for an hour, they will earn the Goodwill Goodturn Patch.
Most Needed Items:
Goodwill gratefully accepts donations that can be sold in their stores. The sale of donated items supports Goodwill’s mission to help people prepare for, find & retain employment.
Please Box or Bag All Donations In Liftable Amounts.
• Small furniture
• Domestics (e.g., sheets, towels)
• Antiques, collectibles, jewelry
• Household items (e.g., dishes, housewares)
