What you can do to help families in need

image001Loss of employment, injury or illness, abandonment and loss of a loved one are examples of circumstances that most often negatively affect the ability of individuals and families to provide gifts for children during the holiday season. The Goodyear Fill-A-Need program is gearing up to brighten the holiday season by helping connect families in need with the generous gifts and donations made available by City of Goodyear employees, residents and local businesses. The program traditionally provides gifts for children such as toys, clothing, and school supplies.  Food and common household items such as toiletries and cleaning supplies are also provided.  In 2018, the program provided clothing, toys, food and non-perishable items to more than 100 children from 32 Goodyear families. 



Referrals/Applications will be solicited in October 25, 2019

Program staff will visit with the families who are referred, and who have met the requirements of the program, to determine final program eligibility and the family's needs.
