Atlanta – Children’s Museum of Atlanta is partnering with Goodwill of North Georgia to encourage local giving. From February 27 through March 11, donors will receive a “buy one, get one free” coupon to the Children’s Museum when they donate to any Goodwill of North Georgia location. The coupon is redeemable from March 4 to 11* and will align with the museum’s “From Here to There” exhibit.
“Donations directly support our mission to put people to work,” says Summer Dunham, director of public relations for Goodwill of North Georgia. “Every time you donate a full bag or box of gently-used goods to Goodwill, we are able to provide an hour of job training for job seekers here in our community.”
Last year the nonprofit placed 20,903 North Georgians into jobs. Goodwill’s mission is made possible by revenue from the donated goods sold in its retail stores, and presently operates 13 career centers which are free and open to the public. It also offers an online job search tool, Career Connector powered by Goodwill, which provides job seekers 24-hour access to employment resources and local job postings. The organization gives job training and placement assistance to people with barriers to employment and to those seeking credentials in a skilled trade. “Just in time for spring cleaning, this partnership with Children’s Museum of Atlanta will help make giving back even more enjoyable,” says Dunham. “Kids can make space in their closets, support the local community and have a little fun in return.”
