For Immediate Release: Oct. 26, 2010



Goodyear Fill-A-Need program donations accepted through Dec. 3



GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Oct. 26, 2010) The Goodyear Fill-A-Need program is gearing up and getting ready to help brighten the 2010 holiday season, helping to connect families in need with  generous gifts and donations by City of Goodyear employees, residents and local businesses. The program traditionally provides gifts for children such as toys, clothing and school supplies.



Donations will be accepted through December 3. Citizens, businesses and civic organizations can participate in the program by donating items such as new unwrapped toys, money, holiday gift wrapping supplies and service. Cash donations are especially welcome and compliment the generous discounts given by retailers.



Make checks payable to Adopt a Family. Donations of items and cash can be brought to Goodyear City Hall lobby at 190 N. Litchfield Road at the corner of Litchfield and Van Buren roads. Please leave donated items unwrapped.



All donations and purchased items are wrapped and personally delivered by volunteers. In 2009, more than 45 families experiencing crisis or extreme financial difficulty were served.



Recent changes to Arizona law now require state and local governmental agencies to obtain forms and other documentation from individuals applying for federal, state and local public benefits covered by the Act to verify their eligibility for such benefits.

Therefore, all applicants for the Fill-A-Need program will be required to fill out a Public Assistance Verification form and provide supporting documentation as needed.

To learn more, call 623-882-7765.
