CAMDEN — Preble Shawnee High School beat Milton-Union High School to earn a $300 scholarship and become the new season leader in last week’s Goodwill Stores Drive to Victory competition. Drive to Victory is a friendly competition each week between two local high schools which battle off the field in a donation drive benefiting Goodwill Easter Seals of Miami Valley.
In their first year in the contest, Preble Shawnee High School collected 15,290 pounds of donations and Milton-Union High School collected 6,950 pounds of donations. These items will be sold in Goodwill Stores, with proceeds supporting the mission of helping people with disabilities and other needs in the community.
Since 2007, the Goodwill Stores Drive to Victory campaign has generated more than one million pounds of clothing and household items along with more than 70 vehicles from around the Miami Valley.
At the conclusion of the season, the school which has collected the most weight during their Drive the Victory week will receive an additional $700 scholarship.
