Goodwill in partnership with WHIO TV’s Touchdown 7 and Arbys will once again this year sponsor the Drive To Victory. Drive to Victory is a friendly competition each week between two local high schools that battle off the field in a donation drive benefiting Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley.

On Monday October 21st at noon a Goodwill Store donation trailer will be placed in the front parking lot of the Valley View High school. The trailer will remain until noon, Friday October 25th.

What Can You Donate:

  • Clothing, Shoes, Toys, Household Items, Housewares, Jewelry, Books, Furniture, Small working appliances, Medical Equipment, Computers, Electronics, Household Textiles.

Receipts for your tax deductible donation will be available.  Attendant’s hours will be Monday Noon – 7pm, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 8 am – 7 pm and Fri. 8 am – Noon.

Our School Band can also receive a bonus by having someone donate a car, truck, boat or RV during the collection period. If you would like to donate a vehicle, please call 228-AUTO. Tell the operator the Band Name (Valley View) and we will receive a 1000-pound bonus.

Remember, at noon on Friday October 25th, the trailers will be picked up and weighed. The school Marching Band that has collected the most weight will be announced on Friday night during Touchdown 7 and will receive a $200 scholarship from Arby’s, and the runner up will receive $100. At the conclusion of the season, the Marching Band that has collected the most weight during their Drive to Victory week has the chance to win up to a total of $1,200 total for their scholarship funds.

In 2018 Valley View collected 14,320 pounds. Lets go big Spartans and show how our community can rally around a great cause. Take this opportunity to clean out those closets, basements and garage facilities for donations. The items collected support Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley which serves people with disabilities and other needs in 23 Ohio counties and numerous local communities. It’s a win win for everyone!
