Goodworth Wealth Management strives to give back to our local community. We know that without our friends and neighbors, we have no one to serve. Whether is supporting organizations like the Big Shoulders Fund or hosting an electronics recycling drive, we’re eager to lend a hand when we can.
One thing we are truly passionate about is supporting local organizations that help feed the hungry. Our Marketing Associate, Rick Dowdle, and his sons spearhead this initiative. We want to share some of their recent activities…not so much to brag on them (although, we are certainly proud of their efforts), but to encourage you, our friends and clients, to give back if you are in a position to do so.
Next time you’re in your local Trader Joe’s, be on the lookout for Rick. He may be stocking up for a run to a local food bank. Goodworth Wealth Management partners with Trader Joe’s to help deliver food items that they donate to food banks in Chicago.

We also assist Our Lady of Perpetual Church and their efforts to support Catholic Charities on the far South Side of Chicago. It may be delivering meals, clothing, or household items. Whatever the payload, Rick and his sons play a game of ‘Charity Tetris’ as they pack the rear of their minivan with items for the needy.

We all want this world to be a better place. That change always starts from within. We hope we have inspired you to give back to your favorite local charitable organization. Clear out your pantry, get rid of that pile of clothes in the back of the closet, and pass that old bike your kid has outgrown on to a new youngster to enjoy. You’ll feel better knowing you made a difference, and your fellow Chicagoans will be better off thanks to your efforts.
