We Care Wednesday Clothing Drive at OC Fair


The OC Fair and Goodwill of Orange County are joining forces for a special We Care Wednesday clothing drive on Wednesday, August 8. From noon to 3 p.m., guests who bring five new or gently-used clothing items per person to the OC Fair for donation to Goodwill of Orange County will receive same-day free admission and one free carnival ride.

The money raised from reselling the goods collected at the OC Fair have made a huge impact on Goodwill’s ability to connect unemployed or underemployed individuals, no matter the challenge or disability, with job opportunities.

In other words, the donations collected on We Care Wednesday help those with barriers to employment find purpose, pride, and dignity. The power of these donated goods is probably greater than you think.

Every pair of jeans donated allows someone in the community to receive access to six minutes of career counseling. Every t-shirt, dress and scarf donated funds additional minutes of training for people with disabilities, veterans and others who are trying to get back on their feet.

OC Fair & Event Center is at 88 Fair Drive in Costa Mesa.
