Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont, in partnership with Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina, Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina and Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont have just wrapped up the annual partnership Good Turn for Goodwill community service project. This event took place throughout the month of October at local Goodwill retail stores and all Goodwill donation centers.
This year, there were 2,443 Girl Scouts from central and western North Carolina who donated 5,817 bags of goods to Goodwill.
“We are all part of the greater community, and this is a way that Goodwill and Girl Scouts can work together to spread that message,” said Jaymie Eichorn, vice president of marketing and communications for Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina. “It was also inspiring to work with such incredible young women.”
Local Girl Scouts collected gently used clothing, toys, books and household goods to benefit Goodwill. The goal was to help those who are unemployed and underemployed find jobs and get back on their feet. The service project taught Girl Scouts life lessons and addressed the needs in their community.
