Goodman Community Center | Backpack & School Supply Drive
We will be closed for Thanksgiving Nov. 24-25, including fitness center, events and all programming. Our food pantry will be closed this week, Nov. 22-24.

Thank you for your support!

We set a goal of providing 200 local kids with everything they need to start to school year off right. You went above and beyond that, and thanks to our generous community, we were able to provide 438 local kids (!!!) with their school supplies for the 2022/2023 school year.

We'll be back next year with another school supply drive. Stay tuned and have a great school year!

What we asked you to do...

The start of the school year brings with it excitement and anticipation. However for many families, this time of year also brings added financial stress. That’s where you come in.

Help us fill backpacks with all the supplies kids in grades 4K through high school need to have a successful school year.

Did you know the average American family spent $272 per child on school supplies last year? And costs are up everywhere, so supplies will be even more expensive this year.

We estimate 100 Goodman kids will need help with supplies this year, and every year, we get calls from families in our community asking if we can help them too. This year, we plan to take care of the 100 Goodman kids plus 100 kids from our community. That’s 200 children and youth – and their families – who won’t have to worry about how they’ll pay for the supplies they need.

What better investment can we make as a community than in the education of our young people?
