Good Turn Day | Goodwill Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada

Good Turn Day


GOODWILL INDUSTRIES OF SACRAMENTO VALLEY & NORTHERN NEVADA is a non-profit organization whose mission is to utilize its resources to help people with disadvantages achieve self-sufficiency.

For over thirty years, Girl Scouts throughout the Sacramento Valley, the Sierra Nevada and surrounding areas have participated in this annual event, which promotes collaboration and community relations while fulfilling the mission of both organizations.

GOOD TURN DAY is a long-standing opportunity for GIRL SCOUTS to assist Goodwill in the fulfillment of their mission by collecting donations from their friends, families, and communities, and drop off at Goodwill stores and/or Donation Xpress sites. This volunteer project is a way for Girl Scouts to learn how they can be leaders and make a difference in their communities by collecting donations that might otherwise end up in a landfill.
