07 Dec Transforming Lives for Mothers and Daughters in Texas
Organization: The Goodness Project
Lives Impacted: 200
The Goodness project, founded in 1999 and located in Fort Worth, Texas, is a private, non-government support group that delivers food, medicine, clothing, toys, school supplies and other necessities to individuals, children and families in the area. Some of the donations distributed from our organization are sent in bulk to other relief organizations to aid in disaster or are processed into individual care packages for urban outreach.
Last month, we received an amazing package of high-end clothing that we distributed to over 200 single moms and their teenage daughters. These were very low-income families for whom it is impossible to afford this clothing on their own. This was a tremendous collaborative effort on many fronts – thanks to this amazing donor, and to Good360 for distribution and to all our staff/volunteers that helped us put this together.
When the ladies received the items, they were blown away. Some cried, some were speechless, and others were just filled with gratitude. One mom told us she couldn’t remember the last time she had a winter coat for herself. Another mom told us that she had just got a new job and didn’t know how she was going to be able to afford the new clothes she would need for her business casual office. Now she had everything she would need and more! It was an amazing opportunity to bless some very special families and moms with this gift of a lifetime. Thank you for all that you do and for bringing Christmas cheer a little early this year.
