Throughout the year, we host events that celebrate our community while they raise donations and awareness to support our many programs. These include:
Early each summer, you gather to play golf, and then enjoy food and beverages at the Harmony Bar, all to benefit the Center. More...
Every November our Thanksgiving Basket program provides groceries to hundreds of area households. More...
Holiday Gift Program
Each winter we help families of the Goodman Community Center's youth programs provide holiday gifts for their children. Participating families complete wish lists for their children under the age of 12. Children from 12 to 18 will receive mall gift certificates. Donor/volunteers choose to sponsor children or shop for a child of a specific age. More...

Seasonal food programs
Would you like to volunteer with our food and meal programs? We always need donations of food items and often need more help. Find out more about volunteering with the Goodman Community Center.
Center-sponsored activities & classes
We arrange scheduled activities in response to our community's interests. These range from instructional programs to just plain fun. Occasional activities include some events just for adults, others for parents and their children, and some for all ages! We have brought people together for drum circles, art-making workshops, and creative movement. We offer specialized support groups around themes like fiscal planning, behavior modification, and more. What's next? You tell us! We're interested in your suggestions, which lead us to offer the classes and activities you need most.

Regular programs include:
East Side History Club
Interested in history, or just like to reminisce? We meet on the third Saturday of January through May and September through November, 2:00-4:00pm. Suggested donation $2. We collect and share memories about the East Side through publications and programs. For the Goodman Community Center's Grand Opening we produced An East Side Album.
We'd like to offer more programs to help you live well and explore your interests. To find out more about Center-sponsored programming, or to make a suggestion, check out our Activities Calendar.
