Goodwill Wants You to Dump Your X’s Stuff: Anti-Valentine’s Day Donation Drive Kicks Off Today

Goodwill of Southern Nevada

Goodwill Wants You to Dump Your X’s Stuff
Anti-Valentine’s Day Donation Drive Kicks Off Today

 

Got rid of him or her, but not their stuff?

Between now and February 14, bring all the stuff an ex-boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse left at your place after the split to one of Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s more than forty donation centers as part of Goodwill’s annual “Dump Your X’s Stuff” donation drive.

Goodwill will also accept “gently used” items that may remind you of him or her –like a DVD of “our movie”. The necklace he gave you for an anniversary. Or the sweater she gave you for that ski trip.

When donors turn their ill-will into Goodwill, they can warm their hearts knowing with every donation they are helping fund Goodwill’s job placement programs in Southern Nevada.

That’s because donations of gently used goods are sold in Goodwill of Southern Nevada retail stores and fund life changing programs like Career Connections, which helped more than 2000 people in our community find employment in 2013.

Plus, every donor will receive a donation receipt and the resulting tax write-off. (You could call it the ultimate revenge.)

Check out www.DumpYourX.org to find a donation center near you, as well as the latest news on Dump Your X in-store radio remotes and prizes.

All items donated to Goodwill of Southern Nevada as part of the Dump Your X’s Stuff donation drive must be the sole property of the donor. Goodwill of Southern Nevada and participating partners are not liable for items donated that do not belong to the individual donating.

Love hockey?

Looking for something to do on the big day? Come to the big game! Bring your sweetheart (or your buddies) to Goodwill Night at the Wranglers on Valentine’s Day Night, February 14. Purchase your $10 ticket online at www.GoodwillNight.org, and $2.50 of every ticket sale will benefit Goodwill of Southern Nevada.
