Scottsville Elementary School Holds "Goodwill Donation Drive"

Posted: Updated:

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, elementary students in Albemarle County are giving thanks by giving back.

This week, Scottsville Elementary School is partnering with Goodwill Industries of the Valleys for a "Goodwill Donation Drive."

From Monday through Friday, the school will collect gently used clothing, books and toys.  Educators say young students can learn a lot by helping others in need.

Scottsville Elementary School counselor Katie Carlson said, "I think it instills some value into the kids, it helps them see that it's good to give to others, it's good to think about the planet."

On this first day of collections, bins are already filling up with donated items.  The drive continues through the week, before Goodwill collects donated items Friday afternoon.
