The Goodman Community Center needs help for Thanksgiving.

The center at 142 Waubesa St. is trying to fill more than 2,000 baskets with food by Monday so the baskets can be distributed to families registered at the center to get the dinner fixings.

Food donations of cranberries, pumpkin pie mix, evaporated milk, canned vegetables, canned fruit, pie crust mix, stuffing and of course, turkeys, are being accepted at the center, along with pie tins and turkey roasting pans.

Donations will be accepted at the center from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The center also is taking financial contributions so perishable items, such as milk, eggs, celery, etc. can be purchased by center staff for the baskets.

Well, what a surprise. A bitter, angry, ill informed conservative directing misplaced anger at a charity collecting food for Thanksgiving baskets and politicizing their efforts. Hey, maybe Paul Ryan will show up and help with the dishes. Oh wait, I forgot, he isn’t campaigning anymore.


When distributing these baskets they should first go to families who don't get food stamps!

Any surprise here? Liberal Madison the heart of Wisconsin Government and where teachers call in sick when not sick and Dr.s write fake sick notes. The Liberal/Leftist paradise of Wisconsin, voting to make more people poor and demanding big government solutions and intervention into everybody's daily lives, can't even fork over a few dollars for charities, because it isn't government run, or union approved.....just saying, I pretty much believe all Liberal/Marxist/Progressives are all hypocrites, promoting Class Warfare and serving their elitist desires.
