Since 2009, GoodTHREADS has clothed over 10,000 children ages newborn to 18 years old.
GoodTHREADS was conceived of by Michele Wright in 2009. As a foster and adoptive parent, Michele had a deep personal understanding of the challenges foster, adoptive and kinship families face in Arizona. She had an idea and brought it to Goodmans. The company supported her personal mission with an investment of company resources such as warehouse space, delivery trucks, donation bins, marketing support and by encouraging employee volunteer participation. Together with the Goodmans Tucson team, GoodTHREADS has clothed over 10,000 kids and enjoyed watching them benefit from the warmth, dignity, pride and sense of community that come with the nice clothing and accessories provided by GoodTHREADS and the experience of attending a GoodTHREADS exchange event.
GoodTHREADS Monthly Clothing Exchange
On the second Saturday of every month, GoodTHREADS Clothing Exchange provides clothing at no cost to foster, adoptive and kinship families. Parents are encouraged to bring gently used, clean clothing that your children have outgrown as an 'exchange' but this is not necessary.
