GoodTHREADS was started by a Goodmans employee in 2009. As a foster and adoptive parent, she 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 14,000 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.
