GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) - Maranda visits Jill from Goodwill Industries at their giant truck they have made beautiful in front of Fifth Third Bank downtown. Besides having 3D elements and telling a story, the truck is a convenient donation center. People can drive up and drop off donations, and local businesses and schools can get donation bags for employees or students. Goodwill wants to make the donation process as easy as possible for people. It's all about giving back and making a difference. Check out the truck during ArtPrize and drop off a donation or call 616-532-4200 to find out how you can get involved. For more info on Goodwill go to www.goodwillgr.org.
The ArtPrize Youth Advisory Board consists of West Michigan high schoolers that bring a fresh opinion to what the youth is looking for during ArtPrize. Maranda meets Carly, a member of the board, and gives her a flip cam to hit Grand Rapids and find her favorite pieces. Carly loves ArtPrize because it brings the community together and is a completely unique event to Grand Rapids. Check out Carly's favorite ArtPrize spots, and find a few of your own!
