Do a Good Turn with Goodwill

Dear Girl Scout Troops,

My name is Luke Miller, the new Communications Manager with Goodwill Industries of Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada. I am so excited to let you know that Good Turn Day 2016 is coming up soon, and I would like to invite your troop to participate!

Good Turn Day has been a successful collaboration for over 30 years where we partner the enthusiasm and drive of the Girl Scouts with the mission of Goodwill. Troops engage their community to gather donations to be dropped off at their local Goodwill store or Donation Xpress, and get Good Turn Day patches to showcase their efforts.

This year’s Good Turn Day starts May 1st and runs through May 31st. We would love for your troop to participate! To do so, fill out the registration portion of the attached form and simply send it back. Then gather your donations! We will be sending out additional information with fun ideas for how Troops can engage with their communities to be as successful in getting donations as possible.

Once all of your donations have been dropped off at a Goodwill store or Donation Xpress (don’t forget to let the attendant know that your donation is for Good Turn Day), send in the second part of the attached form, the Patch Order. We’ll get the patches and rockers back to you and your Girl Scouts! 

If you have any questions about the program or getting started with donations, please don’t hesitate to either email me at or call me at (916) 395-9000 x269

We are excited to get Good Turn Day 2016 rolling, and hope that your troop will join us!
