Last Friday, Hoover High School received this email from Maureen Ater, Vice President of Marketing & Fund Development for Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland and East Central Ohio.
Even before tonight's kickoff, it was a tough battle between Hoover and Lake students in Goodwill's Drive to Victory. This friendly competition, powered by FridayNightOhio.com and iHeartMedia, challenged each school to donate the most goods to Goodwill Industries leading up to the big game this evening.
The donated clothing and housewares will be sold in our local Goodwill stores and ultimately work to support mission services right here in our community. Last year alone, Goodwill supported more than 11,000 individuals through its outreach programs.
Your students helped support employment programs for people with disabilities.
Your students helped build stronger families through our parenting programs.
And, your students helped provide advocacy and support to victims of sexual assault.
THANK YOU for your support!
This afternoon the donation trailers were weighed at our warehouse. Collectively, Hoover and Lake students collected 6,992 pounds of goods!
Congratulations.....HOOVER for collecting the most donations! North Canton City Schools will receive a $250 scholarship for their great effort, courtesy of The Canton Repository! Lake will be presented with a Drive to Victory trophy.
Much appreciation to each and every person that helped make this friendly competition such a great win for our entire community!
Thank you for your support in helping Hoover win!
