Thanks to NYRR and its amazing team of half marathon runners, we collected 15,625 pounds of donations from last weekend’s NY race!

March 17th’s NYRR Half led to 15,625 pounds of donations for Goodwill of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey, Inc. as participants cast-off their starting layers and hit the ground running.

We were able to fill 25 bins with the donated clothing – bins that hold 25 bags each, meaning we collected around 625 bags of donations.

We are grateful for our relationship with NY Road Runners and the community that shows up to support them. Thank you all for your donations and your inspiration.

Your donations make a definite impact on your local community. For more information on how those donations lead to opportunities, visit www.donate.goodwill.org. To locate a GoodwillNyNj donation location near you, visit http://www.goodwillnynj.org/donate-goods/goodwill-donation-locations.
