Goodwill Industries of San Diego County (GISD) and FOX 5 News have joined forces to bring donation opportunities to local high schools. Every week FOX selects what they think will be the best matched local high school football game. That game becomes the Goodwill Game of the Week. At that game, Goodwill's donation truck will be on site to collect donations. We are hoping to bring the power of donations and the effect of helping others to our local teens. Students, families, faculty and friends can come together to give back to our community.
This week the game between Mission Bay and Clairemont is the Goodwill Game of the Week. Bring your donations to the football game this Friday, September 18 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at Clairemont High School, 4150 Ute Drive, San Diego 92117.
GISD uses the revenue generated from the sale of donated goods at its retail thrift stores and after-market facilities to fund job training programs and employment services. GISD was created in 1930 to get people with disabilities and other barriers to employment jobs by developing their skills and work habits through training and real work. In 2014, GISD helped to find employment for more than 3,800 people in San Diego. In fact, we helped 79 people per week, 16 per day find a job.
