How It Works:

  1. There's no need to register for the promotion. Just start donating April 1, 2014!
  2. A Goodwill donation attendant will provide you with a special donation slip. Remember: only donations made between April 1 and April 30, 2014, will count!
  3. Simply indicate your school name, city and number of items donated. Return the slip to the donation attendant.*
  4. The school with the greatest number of items donated will receive a visit from Super Bowl Champion Donald Driver!**

*Donation Slips:

  • Any slips that do not have an exact number written for the "Number of items donated" will be estimated by the donation attendant
  • Goodwill reserves the right to count a donation collection as one item (ie: a bag of 100 marbles = 1 item and not 100 items)
  • If any donation exceeds 999 items in one visit, the Goodwill Store Manager will need to sign the donation drive slip, in order for it to be counted
  • Slips that are not legible or filled out entirely (name of school and city) will not be counted
  • Goodwill is not responsible for any slips that are not received, are lost, or illegible
  • Management reserves the right to verify the number of items indicated by the donor on the submitted donation slip, to ensure accurate counts for this challenge

Give back to your community and help the environment too!
