When one of our staff was out making a gravy run for our Thanksgiving Basket Drive, she was stopped by a woman in the store who asked if she was shopping for a pantry. Hearing this staff member’s mission, the woman pulled out $10 and told her, “My husband I needed a food pantry years ago. We’d like to help.”

At the Goodman Community Center, we’re lucky to witness acts of goodness like this every day, and we want our neighbors to get a little snippet of what we see. That’s why we plan to shine a light on the kindness all around us with an evening of storytelling on April 27. Community members will be invited to share their stories of kind acts both large and small leading up to the event.

Join the evening's MC, John Urban, and hear stories from Goodman CEO Letesha Nelson, other local leaders, youth and neighbors.
