Lincoln Goodwill Invites Neighborhoods to Participate in Neighborhood Challenge
Lincoln Goodwill (lincolngoodwill.org) invites neighborhoods to participate in their 9th annual Neighborhood Challenge, which is a competition among Neighborhood Associations in Lincoln that encourages neighbors to donate leftover items from garage sales or clean-ups. Goodwill will provide convenient and free pick-ups for participating neighborhoods from April through August. Pick-ups can be scheduled any day of the week, from a centralized location for the entire neighborhood. Each participating association will also receive advertising and marketing materials, upon request, to aid in organizing and promoting their events. The top three Neighborhood Associations (in terms of pounds collected) that gather donations exceeding 2,000 pounds will win a cash prize.
In 2020, Goodwill diverted 2.2 million pounds of materials from Lincoln landfills through community donations. Donations directly support Goodwill’s partners, including the Community Justice Center, Lincoln Literacy, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and YWCA Job Outfitters, as well Goodwill’s Job Connection and Retail Organizational Employment program.
Goodwill Lincoln’s annual Neighborhood Challenge presents an opportunity to provide a convenient donation location for the community, help the environment, and support employment programming in the Lincoln community.
