24 Feb Good360 Partnership Provides Clothing and Shoes to Multiple Causes Through Project Friendship
- Project Friendship
- Louisville, Ky
- Lives Impacted: 1,000+
Project Friendship was born from a seemingly simple idea. Students from Gan Torah, the Louisville, KY Jewish Day School, connected with Good360 to help them get some items to distribute to people in need so that they could fulfill the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam, which means improving the society in which they live, that they had just studied. The response was overwhelming, and Good360 donated dozens of pallets of shoes, coats, clothes and more that we would ultimately give out to people in need.
Within a few months, Project Friendship formed to provide a distribution system for this tremendous project. The program has continued to grow, and we have held multiple giveaways, such as working with Neighborhood House, Lord’s Kitchen, Lexington Rescue Mission and numerous hospitals, clinics and shelters throughout Kentucky to provide shoes and clothing to those in need.
We continually receive truckloads of product through our partnership with Good360, and we are excited about what 2020 has on the horizon for Project Friendship. Through this partnership we will be able to provide necessities children who turn 18 and ages out of the foster care system. We are also launching a program for individuals who have committed to turning their lives around after spending time incarcerated. None of this would be possible without Good360.
