Instead of throwing a party, Goodmans Interior Structures is celebrating its 60th anniversary by giving its employees the gift of giving.Goodmans’ employees selected 60 local “do-gooders” to receive a special chair as part of Goodmans Chair Reaction, with the goal of recognizing unsung heroes, inspiring others to continue the positive momentum and making an impact in the community.
Surprise chair deliveries began Dec. 2 and have included North Central recipients:
- Alicia Gonzales, recreation therapist at the Foundation for Senior Living;
- Barbara Carter, a social worker at Hospice of the Valley’s Gardiner Home;
- Dr. Chad Geston, director of School Leadership for the Phoenix Union High School District;
- Laura Hirsch, accounting manager for Ballet Arizona;
- Marion Donaldson, development manager, Free Arts of Arizona; and
- Baldramina Lozano, cook/caregiver, Hospice of the Valley.
“Goodmans Chair Reaction honors a diverse group of people from teachers to nonprofit executives, the unsung community heroes on the front lines and the ones who touch our hearts,” said Adam Goodman, president of Goodmans Interior Structures. “I’m not sure whether our employees or the recipients are more excited and grateful. It’s been a gift for everyone involved.”
