American Family Insurance Commercial Shows Power of Coming Together at Goodman Community Center

Local volunteers and hometown heroes TJ, Derek and JJ Watt gathered to pack boxes of food at American Family’s One Saturday to Dream Fearlessly event

The Goodman Community Center dreams of a better future for kids in their community. On July 8th, American Family Insurance, community volunteers, and some special hometown heroes, the Watt brothers, came to support this endeavor.

300 strong, a volunteer force gathered early at Goodman Community Center to pack 3,000 boxes of food, enough to stock the center’s food pantry for the rest of the summer. In addition, volunteers got their hands dirty installing a brand new greenhouse, chicken coop and outdoor learning center for the countless kids and families who have come to think of Goodman as home.

“We are all stronger with the support a larger community. These kids know when they come here that nobody is going to judge them and that we’re going to try to help them as much as we can” explains Arthur Morgan, Middle School Coordinator for Goodman Community Center.

American Family Insurance brand ambassador JJ Watt was moved by his hometown’s passion. “When you get people together to help others, its crazy how much you can accomplish,” he said.
