Elementary and middle school students from Knox County, Anderson County, Oak Ridge City and Clinton City schools are invited to participate in the 2018 Sack Pack Donation Drive during National Goodwill Week, May 7-11.
Gently used clothes, toys and household items that students and their families no longer need will be collected at school and then donated to Goodwill Industries-Knoxville to support their life-changing job training programs in East Tennessee.
All students who donate during the Sack Pack Donation Drive will receive a free pass to the American Museum of Science and Energy and a free meal from McDonald’s.
In 2017, nearly 1,500 students from Knox and Anderson County generously gave over 33,000 pounds of clothes and goods to Goodwill! As a result, Goodwill was able to provide job training and employment services to nearly 3,000 individuals in 2017. Learn more about Goodwill uses these donations.
Thanks to WBIR, McDonald's and the American Museum of Science and Energy for their support of the Sack Packs.
