WHO WE ARE
4 Good Community was established to do exactly what we are named, to make each community we touch a better place to live. Our no-frills organization was established to take the resources at our disposal into the hands of those who need them. 4 Good Community works alongside our retail asset donors to leverage the available resources to make the greatest impact for those in need. We make use of in-kind corporate donations to improve living standards, as well as use our volunteer network to make an impact for the community, individuals, and the environment.
The worth of our organization can only be measured through the good that we do, and the lives that we touch. 4 Good Community was established to make a difference, and that's exactly what we do, and will continue to do.
4 Good Community works to put product, commodities, and overall enrichment into the hands of those in need, giving them a better quality of life. Besides working to distribute product and commodities into the hands of those in need, 4 Good Community is enriching communities through Scholarship campaigns, our Soup Kitchen, Dolly Parton Imagination Library, Food Pantry, Asset Distribution, and National Distribution. As an organization, we believe that by investing into the growth of those around us, we are wholly investing in the rise of our community.
4 Good Community is especially excited to announce our permanent expansion to the Eastern Cherokee Nation! Since October of 2021, 4 Good Community has operated a food bank / resource center for anybody within the Native Nation that is facing hardship. The Eastern Cherokee Nation has suffered greatly by the horrendous Indian Removal Act, and we work diligently to provide an uplifting presence on the land.
4 Good Community is a unique organization. Because of the background of our founders, we have the unique ability to leverage financial resources and assets that enable us to be nimble, as well as thoughtful in our approach. This allows us to make a difference, and FAST. 4 Good Community has leveraged to impact countless families, individuals, and organizations, not just locally, but all across the nation. The goal of our organization is not to sustain poverty, but to provide the tools and resources to rise from poverty and oppression.

The foundation of 4 Good Community was largely set by the executive board, and the life experiences collectively of them all. In the cumulative life of the board, we have experienced extreme economic shortcomings as children, witnessed disadvantaged individuals become further depressed and disadvantaged just through the happenings of life, and witnessed innumerable situations where we could have made a difference, wanted to make a difference, but failed in action because life has a way of making us all content staying in our individual comfortable bubbles.
4 Good Community was established after long self introspection, and the rediscovery of ones true self. Although members of the executive board had found success in the business community, they lacked satisfaction. This is when, after deep soul searching, our now acting president took the initiative steps in founding 4 Good Community. Partly a passion project, this organization was founded to bring the true essence of humanity back into the lives of all those involved. Our lives are touched and enriched by helping others, and helping to provide to make the world a better place one community at a time.
4 Good Community operates through the generosity of our corporate in-kind sponsors. We take product donations to give in the communities we operate. We are very aware of sensitive branding. Our volunteers can remove and deface any brand sensitive content, and 4 Good Community is very selective on the markets we supply, to ensure the greatest impact and benefit for our corporate sponsors. 4 Good Community's environmental awareness will ultimately allow for appropriate product recycling when necessary, while supplying work to those in need.
