Goodman Community Center | Ways You Can Help
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.

We can't do it without YOU! Each year our community turns out with volunteer hours, food donations and monetary gifts to help us collect and distribute everything needed to make a Thanksgiving meal at home. Read on for all the ways you can help.

1. Make a financial gift

Your monetary donation helps us provide fresh foods in each basket. We purchase fresh groceries like veggies, milk, butter, eggs and pumpkin pie, and we’ll purchase items to fill in any gaps, including turkeys.

Donate Now

If we receive gifts that exceed the need for Thanksgiving, they will go toward general support of Goodman, ensuring we can continue to strengthen lives and secure futures in our community.

2. Donate Food

We rely on your food donations to meet our goals. Donations can be dropped off in the Goodman Community Center’s gym, during the following times:

  • Monday - Tuesday, Nov. 14-15 10am-3pm
  • Wednesday - Friday, Nov. 16-18, 10am-7pm
  • Saturday - Sunday, Nov. 19-20, 9am-5pm

3. Host a Food Drive or Fundraiser

Food drives and fundraisers are a HUGE help. Could you host one at your workplace, faith community, club or neighborhood — or raise money through your online community? Our food drive kit has posters and shopping lists, a tips sheet, and sample text and images to spread the word virtually.

4. Give Your Time

It takes a lot of volunteers to make Thanksgiving Baskets a success – we'd love to have you join us. Volunteers are needed for numerous tasks to ensure we can fill every basket.
