Earth Day Donation Drive

April 21, 2014

One of our favorite days of the year at Seattle Goodwill is Earth Day. Why? Because we’re big fans of reducing waste, reusing items, and recycling gently used goods! We’re believers in the age-old adage “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Tomorrow, April 22nd, you can be a part of “reduce, reuse, recycle” by joining us for our Earth Day Donation Drive. We’ve partnered with Sinclair Broadcast Group and Goodwill of the Olympics and Rainier Region to put on a wide-spread donation drive at all of our Goodwill donation sites.

We'll be hosting a fun event with special guests, a food truck, and some Seattle Mariners legacy swag! Most of the excitement will happen from 12pm until about 3pm - but donations will be accepted from 8am-8pm. Curious who's going to be around for the event? Check it out:

  • 12:00 - 3:00pm:
  • 12:30-2:30pm:
    • Kent Phillips of Star 101.5 will host a live remote broadcast.
    • Kelly Koopmans and Seth Wayne from KOMO News will be hanging out, live tweeting the event.
  • 1:00-3:00pm:
  • 4:00-5:00pm:
    • Rat City Roller Girls Lexi Luthor & Rebecca Sqwelch will join the fun.

We’ve got Seattle Mariners swag from various past seasons—and includes bobble heads, sunglasses for the kiddos, t-shirts, hats, and a few travel mugs. All of the swag will be given away on a first-come-first-served basis—and we’ll start the giveaways around 12:30pm in conjunction with the live broadcast. If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve already seen how excited we are about Earth Day.

If you DON’T follow us on social media, we highly recommend jumping over there to get in on week two of our Earth Day Giveaways! We’ve been giving away some seriously awesome prizes on social media including a Rat City Roller Girls prize package, Seattle Storm tickets, some Zipcar gift certificates, dining cards from Restaurants Unlimited and Palomino Seattle, and more. This week, we’ve got more sweet prizes lined up like tickets to go see Cher & Cyndi Lauper at the Key Arena, tickets to the Fisherman’s Village music festival, tickets to go see Sarah McLaughlin at the Chateau St. Michelle Winery, and some prizes from the Rat City Roller Girls, Seattle Sounders, and Seattle Mariners! Here’s the full prize list:

What are you waiting for? Join the fun on social media, pack up your gently used goods, and get ready to get your Earth Day on tomorrow! We look forward to seeing you!
