FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Two organizations are joining forces to help those in need. The Boy Scouts of America Troop #33 and the Goodwill of Northeastern Indiana are hosting a donation drive Aug. 29.

The Scouts will help Goodwill personnel take donations that will be sold in Goodwill’s stores. The money raised from the sale of the donations will support Goodwill’s Employment Services, which helps people with disabilities and employment barriers find and keep jobs in northeast Indiana.

Last year, Goodwill’s employment services provided 12,241 services to people. The services are free to those who qualify.

The Scouts will be available to take a range of donations including: household goods, clothing (in any condition), shoes, accessories, books, small electronics, computers and accessories (working and non working) linens and furniture in good repair. They are unable to accept televisions, mattresses, beds, box springs, large appliances, pianos, or organs.

The donation drive is at the Rural King on U.S. 24. It runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 29.
