In-Service Donations

In-Service Day Donations

GoodwillTwo donation drives will be held in conjunction with In-Service Day this spring. Student Engagement and Leadership (SEaL) is coordinating a drive for Goodwill Columbus. Employees are encouraged to bring donations of gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories, as well as household items such as small appliances, dishes, linens, glassware, and etc. Last Spring In-Service we collected more than 80 bags of donations! Let's try to beat that this year. Goodwill Columbus will have a tent near the Christopher Columbus statue to collect your donations from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on In-Service Day.

mid ohio foodbankWe will also kick off our Mid-Ohio Food Bank campaign on In-Service Day. There are three ways to donate to Mid-Ohio Food Bank – through payroll deduction, through a direct monetary gift to the organization, or by donating non-perishable food items for their pantries to help local residents. Did you know that each $3 we raise can feed a family of four for one day? Items in greatest need are such things as chili with beans, canned fruit (in juice or light syrup), tuna, canned vegetables, canned meat, soup (with vegetables) and peanut butter. Look for Mid-Ohio Foodbank donation boxes several locations: at the Delaware Gymnasium, at the luncheon location in WD, and alongside the Goodwill tent near the Christopher Columbus statue.
