Good Turn Day has become a community tradition between Goodwill Industries® and Girl Scouts Louisiana East.
HOW IT WORKS
Scouts do a Good Turn by collecting gently used items (such as clothing, books, shoes, purses, ect.) to bring to their local Goodwill and are honored with a “Good Turn” patch for participating. Your participation also helps make the general public aware of Goodwill’s mission and need for donations of quality gently used goods. Once items are received, they are processed and sold in Goodwill’s 23 retail stores to support its mission of helping people with disabilities and other employment disadvantages prepare for, find and retain work. Your donations also keep millions of reusable items out of local landfills, making your good turn also good for the environment.
EDIT: Due to parades on Saturday March 2, three of our locations will be closing early: Veterans at 5:00 pm, Mandeville at 4:00 pm, and Tulane 3:30pm.
