Nixon’s 5th grade class has teamed up with Goodwill to raise funds for 5th grade promotion events. Bring your donations to Nixon on Saturday, 10/19 from 9 AM to 3 PM, and help us fill the truck!

Goodwill accepts gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, small household items, toys, games, puzzles, books, movies and music, E waste, small electronics at their drives. All items should be under 50 pounds.

You get to give items a “second life” and keep them out of landfills – it’s a win-win! So, clean out your basements, organize your garages, and straighten your closets. It’s time to bring your treasures to the donation drive. The more you bring the more good you do!
