Local High School to Win a SMART Board in 5th Annual Recycle Your Style Contest

Goodwill of Central Illinois will hold the 5th Annual Recycle Your Style Contest. High school students within Goodwill’s territory are encouraged to donate their used clothing. The high school that donates the most pounds of clothing will win a SMART Board donated by Bradfield’s Computer Supply. The contest runs from October 1st through October 31st.

“This has been a very successful campaign for us,” said Bob Parkhurst, Goodwill Vice President. “We are grateful for Bradfield’s Computer Supply’s donation of a SMART Board each year. That prize really heats up the competition among the high schools.”

Donations of items other than clothing are encouraged, but only clothing will count toward the contest. Only high schools are eligible, but others can participate including teachers, family and school supporters. Donors need to tell the Goodwill donation attendant which high school they are supporting for their donation to be counted. Donations can be made at any of Goodwill’s nine stores or two donation centers. Goodwill locations can be found at www.goodwillpeo.org.

Goodwill Industries of Central Illinois is a non-profit organization that provides job training, career and vocational services and youth mentoring to individuals and families who are working to improve their lives. Revenues from the sale of donated items support the Vocational Services programs of Goodwill. For further information on retail stores, donation centers and vocational services, visit the website at www.goodwillpeo.org or call the Administrative Offices at (309) 682-1113.
