On Saturdays from May to October, the Fenton Street Market transforms Veterans Plaza in downtown Silver Spring into a bustling marketplace full of crafts, antiques, fine art, imported goods from across the globe, and community programming ranging from local musical acts to yoga classes.
Last fall Goodwill of Greater Washington participated in the market by bringing out a trunk show and was invited to do so again Saturday, June 22nd.
Goodwill of Greater Washington recently piloted a donation campaign called, Kid’s Bins. Goodwill is working with Applebee’s restaurants and the local school systems to place Goodwill donation bins in Applebee’s restaurant parking lots throughout the region. The artwork on the bins is designed by local elementary school students.
The first bin was unveiled on May 18th at the Applebee’s located at 6310 Richmond Highway in Alexandria, Virginia. The artwork was designed by students from nearby Bucknell Elementary School.
Each of the hand prints that make up the trees, sky and grass are those of the students. Inside each hand print is a word or phrase that reflects Goodwill’s mission or brand such as “Donate”, “Help others” or “jobs”.
