Thanksgiving Baskets

Thanksgiving. Thousands of reasons to be grateful!

Elmside School wheels in donations

For many years, the Goodman Community Center, with your help, has provided groceries to thousands families across Dane County so they, too, can make a traditional Thanksgiving meal to share with their families. We can only do this because every year people like you >> families, businesses and organizations from throughout our community >> have pulled out the stops and contributed tremendous amounts of food, money to buy food, and precious time to help us organize it all. Thank you!


If you have questions about the Thanksgiving Basket program, please contact Amy Mach at or 608-204-8027.

UW Red White Hunger Fight

The Goodman Community Center's Thanksgiving Basket Drive is in the news thanks to a partnership with Wisconsin Badgers and the UW's Red and White Hunger Fight.

Wisconsin Athletics is proud to continue its strong tradition of fighting hunger in the community. Since its implementation seven years ago, the Red White Hunger Fight has represented the culmination of hundreds of individuals uniting to give back to the community.

This year, the Red White Hunger Fight has joined efforts with the Goodman Community Center to best serve the needs of our community and ensure that all families can enjoy a warm Thanksgiving meal.
