Project Wear and Share

 

This February Goodwill Industries- Knoxville will partner with local dry cleaners throughout our 15 county service area to host a clothing drive. Participating dry cleaners will collect and dry clean gently used items donated by their patrons. These items will be given to Goodwill stores and resold in order to benefit Goodwill's job training and placement programs.

The material drive is just one of several material drives throughout the year that help Goodwill raise revenue. Goodwill is grateful to have the support of these local dry cleaners and their customers who have helped make Project Wear and Share so successful year after year. To see if your dry cleaner is participating, click here!

Proceeds generated from the selling of the donated items will aid Goodwill's training and employment efforts for individuals with barrier to employment. In 2011, Goodwill Industries- Knoxville, Inc. served 3,832 individuals and experienced roughly 3,480 positive program completions.

For more information, please call the Goodwill Marketing Department at 865.588.8567.
