(SAVANNAH, GA) Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, in partnership with Hanes, is encouraging people to conquer their cluttered drawers once and for all and donate all unwanted clothing to Goodwill. The “Clean Out Your Drawers” campaign is accepting gently used clothes at several Goodwill locations during the month of March. Donors who take a picture of themselves making the donation and upload their photo on Hanes’ Facebook page will be entered to win a grand prize of $2,500 and Hanes products. In addition, four weekly winners will be chosen to receive $50 Visa gift cards.
Participating Goodwill stores in the Coastal Empire area include the stores in Savannah, Wilmington Island, Pooler, Hinesville, St. Mary’s, Statesboro, Brunswick, Vidalia and Richmond Hill.
“This is a great opportunity for people in the community to get a head start on their spring cleaning and benefit Goodwill Industries at the same time,” says Mohsen Badran, CEO of Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, Inc. “Donating your gently used clothing and other items to Goodwill not only benefits the environment, it also provides training and work opportunities for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment.”
Hanes is an official partner of Goodwill Industries’ “Donate Movement,” which seeks to make a difference for people in the community and make the planet healthier. Last year, Goodwill diverted more than 2 billion pounds of donated goods from landfills.
