VANDALIA — Butler Schools and Northmont Schools will compete in the second week of the Goodwill Drive to Victory’s 11th season, sponsored by Arby’s. Drive to Victory is a friendly competition each week between two local schools that battle off the field in a donation drive benefiting Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley.
Monday, September 11, through Thursday, September 14, donation trailers will be parked at the following Arby’s locations:
Butler: 228 E. National Road, Vandalia
Northmont: 705 S. Main Street, Englewood
Attendants will be at these Arby’s locations from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. to assist with donations and provide receipts and Arby’s coupons. The school community that collects the most weight by Friday will be announced on Friday night during WHIO-TV’s Touchdown 7 and will receive a $300 scholarship from Arby’s.
These donated items will be sold in Goodwill Stores and at the Goodwill Auto Auction with proceeds supporting the mission of helping people with disabilities and other needs here in the community.
At the conclusion of the season the school that has collected the most weight during their Drive the Victory week will receive an additional $1,000 scholarship.
