Washington, D.C., October 6, 2022 – As our community continues to distance itself from the COVID-19 pandemic, Goodwill of Greater Washington and GEICO are once again partnering on one of the region’s largest donation drives.
On Saturday, October 22, GEICO will accept community donations for Goodwill in the parking lot of its headquarters located at 5260 Western Avenue, Chevy Chase, Maryland, between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The community is invited to donate their computers and electronics, clothing, housewares, and small household appliances. Several Goodwill trucks will be at the site to accept and transport the goods to the nearest Goodwill donation center.
All computers and accessories will be recycled through the Dell Reconnect Program. Computers and parts do not need to be in working condition. Only cracked monitors will not be accepted due to environmental hazards.
All other donations will be resold through Goodwill’s chain of retail stores. Sales help provide free job training and employment services to people with disabilities and disadvantages throughout the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.
Goodwill’s goal is to collect more than 10,000 pounds of donations at this one day, four-hour donation drive.
“GEICO has been a dedicated partner to Goodwill of Greater Washington for several years and this donation drive is consistently the top-performing drive we host each year,” said Brendan Hurley, Goodwill of Greater Washington’s Chief of Collaboration, Communications, and Marketing. “We are grateful for the continued support from both GEICO and the community!”
