Greenville and West Carrollton competing in Drive to Victory!

GREENVILLE—WHIO-TV has selected the Greenville vs. West Carrollton football game as Game of the Week on Sept. 14. Not only is the Green Wave being challenged to win on the field, the Greenville Student Council hopes they will win in another arena – the Goodwill Drive to Victory competition.

The Goodwill Stores Drive to Victory is in its 6th season with WHIO-TV and 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. The school collecting the most weight will receive a $200 scholarship from Mid-USA Credit Union. At the conclusion of the season the school that has collected the most weight during their Drive to Victory week will receive an additional $700 scholarship.

Donations will be accepted at the Goodwill trailer parked at the high school stadium parking lot Sept. 10-14, Monday, noon to 7 p.m.; Tuesday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Friday, 9 a.m. to noon. Goodwill attendants will accept donations of clothing, household items and computers. Receipts for the tax deductible donation will be available from the attendant.

On Friday, the trailer will be picked up and weighed. The school that has collected the most weight will be announced on Friday night during Touchdown 7.

(Winning tip): Computers, accessories and books add weight. Also, cars, trucks, boats and RVs can also be donated and counted toward the school’s weight. Call 228-AUTO to donate or find out more details on how a vehicle donation can be made.

Since 2007, the Goodwill Stores Drive to Victory campaign has generated more than 460,000 pounds of clothing and household items along with more than 40 vehicles from around the Miami Valley. These items are sold in stores and at the auto auction, with proceeds supporting the mission of helping people with disabilities and other needs here in the community.
