“Stuff A Truck and Make a Buck” will benefit local non-profit organizations the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Tri-State and Goodwill Industries of the KYOWVA.
RMHC houses families for a period of time who have children who are in need of medical attention.
“For every truck filled with donations, Ronald McDonald House earns $1,000,” said Jaye Toler, director of development for RMH. “This is one of those fundraisers that doesn’t require much work, and helps two organizations, us and Goodwill. We hosted this last year and raised $1,700. This money helps sponsor families with sick children staying with us while receiving hospital treatment.”
The donated items will be sold in Goodwill stores and the money raised from this event will go to the RMHC to help with annual expenses.
“When people donate to Goodwill, it funds our stores,” said Goodwill Community Employment Specialist Erin White. “Which funds our programs such as finding people employment, counseling services and career services. The donations are what keep our stores going.”
The fundraiser will take donations until April 26,  which can be dropped off at the RMH from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
