Local Mayors & County Commission Chairman to Compete in the “Spring Clean for Goodwill Challenge” on Tuesday, April 26
It’s about more than bragging rights. It’s about funding job placement and training programs for people in Southern Nevada, no matter their circumstance or disability. 

On Tuesday, April 26, 2016, Mesquite Mayor Allan Litman, Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee and Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak will go head to head to see which municipality can donate the most goods to Goodwill in one day, just in time for spring cleaning.

Each elected official will don the blue Goodwill vest and volunteer at a donation center for a minimum of a half hour on Tuesday, April 26, personally collecting donations from the community while working side-by-side with a Goodwill team member whose life has been changed thanks to Goodwill of Southern Nevada.

Donations at each location where a mayor or the county commissioner appear will be tracked throughout the day and measured by number of donors. The jurisdiction with the most donors will win the challenge.

Goodwill Drive Thru Donation Centers are open on Tuesday, April 26 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“The mayors and the commissioner are having a little fun with our Spring Clean for Goodwill Challenge trying to ‘out donate’ each other,” said Steve Chartrand, president & CEO of Goodwill of Southern Nevada. “But the reality is, our entire community will win because of this challenge. By doing a bit of spring cleaning, we can help thousands in Southern Nevada get a fresh start.”

Goodwill of Southern Nevada transforms donated goods and monetary contributions into pathways to meaningful employment for Southern Nevadans in need. In 2015, Goodwill of Southern Nevada successfully placed 2,383 individuals into local, sustainable jobs generating more than $48 million in earned wages.
