Goodwill - Good Turn Project

Good Turn Project is a collaborative service opportunity with local Goodwill Industries of both Dallas and East Texas and Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas to help individuals with disabilities and disadvantages who need special job training. Girl Scouts will be collecting thousands of pounds of usable clothing and household items that Goodwill can sell in their stores. The money from these sales funds job training for people in the community, helping them to become self sufficient wage earners to be independent.

New this year, Goodwill Industries of East Texas will be participating in this project. Please be sure when you complete your collection reporting form that you check which Goodwill Industries your items were donated to. It is crucial that we know where your donations were given in order for us to properly report back to the two participating Goodwill Industries organizations.

Here is How Good Turn Project Works:
The Good Turn Project begins October 1st and ends October 31st. Girl Scout Troops/Groups can collect usable personal and household items and take bags to designated Goodwill drop off points (locations are listed below for the two participating Goodwill Industries).  Each girl who collects a least two or more bags (7-10 gallon size) will receive a FREE patch as long as supplies last. Patches will be available in December. The GS Troop with the greatest number of bags collected per girl in each Goodwill Industries jurisdiction (Dallas and East Texas) will receive a FREE Pizza Party.
