PVPV Rawlings conducts GOODWILL drive


More than 1,000 PVPV/Rawlings students and families participated in the school’s recent “GOODWILL Bag it Up Drive,” donating clothing, toys, books and household items to GOODWILL Industries of North Florida.

Two truckloads of donations were loaded up for GOODWILL as part of the drive, which was conducted as part of PVPV/Rawlings’ Character Counts Initiative. So successful was the drive, in fact, that GOODWILL representatives presented school officials with a check for $2,000 and two new computers, while 10 families won additional prizes in a drawing.

In addition to PVPV/Rawlings, a number of other local schools also participated in the “Bag it Up Drive,” including Ocean Palms Elementary and Valley Ridge Academy.
