All schools want to give the best to our children, but giving the best can cost money – new books, countless glue sticks and stacks of paper can add up fast. That is why we buy all the candles, candy, and trinkets from school fundraisers and clip all the box tops. We know it will help cover those never ending expenses and support the school. But, is there an easier way? Some sort of fundraiser that doesn’t come out of the parents pocket or require hitting up family and friends, again, to buy more stuff from your child? Yes! Through Goodwill of Central Arizona donation drives, you can help the environment by donating items that you no longer use and were going to throw away, and raise money for your school (or organization) by getting paid per pound for all of the usable items you collect.
According to their website, over 4 billion pounds of clothing is thrown away each year. By keeping those clothes and household items out of landfills and donating to Goodwill of Central Arizona, you are not only keeping the environment clean, but helping to support and provide job training and placement for thousands of people living in the valley.
Hosting a donation drive is the easiest fundraiser you will ever find, all you have to do is contact their donation coordinator to set up a date for your drive. Goodwill of Central Arizona will then provide your school or organization with custom marketing materials to spread the word. Then start collecting! Books, toys, clothing, furniture, electronics…….they take all sots of household goods off of your hands and keep them out of landfills. Anything they can’t resell in their stores gets recycled. When your drive is over and donations are weighed, you get paid!
