The heart of The Goodness Project
Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Bill Fletcher always had a heart for helping the poor because of his family’s history of giving to the those who needed it the most. Right after finishing college, he developed a business plan for Mission Services in Hamilton under the leadership of the late Frank Pauls. In 1990, he and his wife, Rachelle, moved to Canada the first year they were married, but then moved back to Texas answering the call to ministry. In 1999 while pastoring a church in Haltom City, Texas, Bill and Rachelle answered the call to the needs of the working poor by hosting an outreach in their city. With over 8,000 people in attendance, they distributed free food and toys. For the next four years, they continued to hold annual outreaches and started a weekly food distribution to serve the community.
Eventually they opened a food bank in Haltom City where they daily served the hungry. In 2002, the Goodness Project was born. Bill and Rachelle left their pastoral positions to work full time, targeting essential resources to families in crisis and disaster.
Shortly, they realized the need to resource other nonprofits. Bill and Rachelle began sourcing and distributing goods to other nonprofit organizations to save time and money. They believe when we work together, we can do more good for our communities.
We are international
Brantford is a city not far from Toronto, where over six million people reside, and the location of our main distribution center in Canada. We collaborate with churches, city officials, and volunteers to supply, package, and distribute vital resources to families in crisis in the GTA and surrounding cities. The Goodness Project provides vital resources for children, single moms, the elderly and families facing crisis.
The Goodness Project is expanding to Israel
The Goodness Project is broadening its reach to rescue and restore families and children in Israel, which has the highest poverty rate of any country in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). We are partnering with several organizations on the ground in Israel and strategically working with government to supply resources to the poorest areas.
We also plan to meet the needs of the children and families closest to the Gaza border, who have only 15 seconds to get to shelter once missiles are fired. These children live in a traumatic environment due to the constant threat of war. The Goodness Project wants to provide hope and ways for them to cope. We are collaborating with counselors and people on the ground to provide music therapy, art, and deliver things like teddy bears and toys that will help the children recover from the trauma. There are more than one million Israelis who cannot make ends meet and over 814,000 children who live in poverty — and the Goodness Project is there to help.
