Taking a small break from crafts and parties to talk again about Goodwill (again)! Did you know that Goodwill is the ORIGINAL recycler? Sure, the traditional recycling efforts are great (bottles, cardboard, cans, etc) but recycling items that you can no longer use does a great deal for Mother Earth as well!
My local Goodwill is Goodwill of Middle Tennessee and since they were founded over 50 years ago, they have diverted millions of items from the landfill here in the Nashville area.
With Earth Day coming up, why don't you take the opportunity to donate something of yours to a greater cause. Divert something from a landfill? While clearing out the clutter!
My son and I recently did. While cleaning up our yard for the season of backyard play, we decided these two items were great to recycle for other children and it kept the items out of landfill.
We have a brand new Goodwill location that just opened by our house so we drove over to drop off this donation and then go in to check out the new selections. Like how I donate and then go in and buy? LOL
The staff at Goodwill is always friendly and grateful for the donation. They help unload everything out of your car and handle your items with care. Before you leave, they always thank you and ask if you need a receipt for your donation. Great people!
In honor of Goodwill's Community Donation Drive, Everyday Celebrating and Goodwill are giving away TWO $10 Goodwill Gift Cards.
One card will go to a resident of the Middle Tennessee area so they can support my hometown Goodwill.
The other card will go to one Everyday Celebrating reader outside of the Middle Tennessee area.
