How It Works:

  • There's no need to register for the promotion. Just start donating beginning November 1, 2016!
  • Go to any participating Goodwill Store and Donation Center with your donations. Ask the Goodwill Donation Attendant for the Fall Haul Donation slip. Remember: only donations made between November 1 and November 30, 2016, will count!
  • Simply indicate your school name, city and number of items donated. The Goodwill donation attendant will keep the donation slip.*
  • The school with the greatest number of items donated will receive a visit from two Chicago Blackhawks players!
  • The winning school must be a high school in our service territory.

*Donation Slips:

  • Be sure to fill in your donation slip completely.
  • Donation slips that are not legible or filled out entirely (name of school and city) will not be counted.
  • If any donation exceeds 1,000 items in one visit, the Goodwill Store Manager will need to sign the donation slip, in order for it to be counted.
  • Any donation slips that do not have an exact number written under "Number of items donated" will be estimated by the donation attendant.
  • Goodwill reserves the right to count a donation collection as one item (i.e. a bag of 100 marbles = 1 item and not 100 items).
  • Goodwill 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.
  • Goodwill is not responsible for any slips that are not received, lost, or illegible.
