Goodwill Industries, Fox 5 encourage donations at Torrey Pines football game Sept. 4

Goodwill Industries of San Diego County and Fox 5 have joined forces to bring donation opportunities to local high schools. Students can come together to give back to the community by bringing donations to the Mission Hills vs. Torrey Pines football game from 6-7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4, at 3710 Del Mar Heights Road, San Diego.

Goodwill uses the revenue generated from the sale of donated goods at its retail thrift stores and after-market facilities to fund job training programs and employment services.

Goodwill was created in 1930 to get people with disabilities and other barriers to employment jobs by developing their skills and work habits through training and real work.

In 2014, it helped to find employment for more than 3,800 people in San Diego.
