On November 7th, scouts across Ohio will be visiting Goodwill stores to earn a special patch for the fall Good Turn Day.
All ten of the Goodwill of South Central Ohio stores will participate in the special event.
The idea of Good Turn Day is to provide Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts an opportunity to do a “good turn” in their community by collecting used clothing, books, housewares, and other items to donate to Goodwill.
During the November 2019 Good Turn Day, local goodwill stores awarded more than 100 Good Turn Day patches. Scouts earn a patch by donating a large trash bag (or equivalent) of items.
Typically, scouts can choose to volunteer at a store instead of making a donation, but the goodwill stores are not offering volunteer opportunities at this time due to the pandemic.
Donations for Good Turn Day may be dropped off anytime during business hours November 7th at stores in Athens, Chillicothe, Circleville, Jackson, Logan, McArthur, South Bloomfield, Washington Court House, and Waverly.
