Benefiting

Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana

Earn Your Goodwill Patch and Help Your Community

On February 3, 2013 over 120 scouting Units consisting of over 3500 scouts will kickoff the Annual Goodwill Clothing Drive in neighborhoods throughout Caddo- Bossier Parish and surrounding parishes. We are asking the Community to support us in our efforts to collect over 2000 bags of gently used clothes and household items to support the Goodwill Industries.

On Saturday, March 9, 2013 scouts will drop-off all the donations collected during the month at the locations specified on the bottom portion of this flyer. Each scout will receive their 2013 Good Turn for America Goodwill Clothing Drive patch for their participation in this event.    

Patch Requirements

Each scout must turn in five grocery bags full of gently used clothes and household goods. If there are two or more scouts from the same household, they jointly need 8 grocery bags full of gently used clothing and household goods. Make sure to sign the Donation list, with the number of bags indicated, when making your donation.

HOW TO COLLECT???
Some units choose to collect from family, friends, and neighbors by passing out bags with flyers the week of March 2, 2013 and collecting them on March 9, 2013. Some units may choose to collect within their church, school, recreation center, or any other chartered organization. There are several ways to collect but lets all participate and make a difference in our Community!!
