of goods donated during times of disaster end up in landfills or otherwise going to waste

A lack of coordinated communication and well-intentioned (but uninformed) giving can create chaos, inefficiencies and waste.

Good360 ensures that the right goods are delivered to the right people at the right time throughout ALL stages of disaster recovery.

We’ll be there in the early days with personal care items, supplies for shelters, and cleaning/mucking out products and we’ll be there long after the media spotlight has dimmed months and years later with furniture, mattresses, home goods and other necessities to help impacted communities through the recovery journey.

A lack of sustained giving impedes the long-term recovery of impacted communities.

A Partnership for the Long Haul: Good360 and Rooms To Go Collaborate for Long-Term Disaster Recovery

It has been a long and continuous road to recovery for survivors of the 2016 Louisiana floods. The partnership between Good360 and furniture retailer Rooms To Go has allowed a supply of quality furniture to be delivered to these families while ensuring that donations are going to the right communities in need at the right time.

Our Approach to Disaster Recovery



In the days and weeks immediately following a disaster, Good360 focuses on providing needed goods for individuals who have been displaced from their homes.  This could include toiletries, diapers, socks/underwear, toys/games for kids, snacks, and even mattresses and bedding for shelters.



During the clean-up phase, we move quickly to partner with on-the-ground organizations to source items critical to supporting debris removal, gutting damaged infrastructure and the early stages of mold remediation.  Safety equipment, buckets, tools and appropriate cleaning supplies are important here.



Once the clean-up phase is behind us, Good360 prioritizes donations of building materials in order to aid in reconstruction.  Donations of paint, roofing materials, dry wall, flooring, hardware, and major household appliances are key. Furniture and household goods also help turn houses back into livable homes.



Families and communities forced to start from scratch will have needs that evolve over time. With our generous network of corporate donors, Good360 is positioned to support those needs and to pre-position important goods for planning and mitigation against future disasters.
