We are pleased to announce our new name, Impact of Southern Arizona. Why are we changing our name? Great question. We are growing, thanks to our many supporters and community partners, and we have expanded our facilities, staff and volunteers, allowing us to meet the needs of more families and to impact even more lives.
At some point in our lives, many of us will need (or want) to move to a smaller space. It could be a change of lifestyle, finances, age or simply feeling a need to simplify. Downsizing can be difficult, but having a clear plan can certainly make it a much smoother process.
We always have an amazing inventory of sporting goods, health and exercise equipment, books and music, clothing, shoes and accessories and everything else you need for your makeovers and gift giving. Take a trip down memory lane in our vintage, antiques and collectibles department. Whether it’s your home, wardrobe, lawn, garden, “man-cave,” mind or body, profess your love with a beautiful piece of gold or silver jewelry. The Golden Goose has what you need for pennies on the dollar. Don’t forget to bring in your coupon the next time you shop at the Goose.

A year and a half after moving into a new 13,000-square-foot facility in Catalina, the Golden Goose Thrift Shop continues to grow and thrive, offering the public a variety of goods that fills the space to near overflowing.
Randy Metcalf/The Explorer, Georgene Birchard, who has volunteered for Catalina Community Services for the past six years, sorts through clothing that will either be placed in the new clothing bank, the Golden Goose Thrift Shop, or passed on to the Salvation Army.
Shopping at the Golden Goose is like reaching into a box of chocolates — you never know what you're going to get.

Steve Renzi/Special to The Explorer, Stephanie Urdiales, general manager for six years at the Golden Goose in Catalina, cradles the store's namesake amid a flock of birds. Grand re-opening of the thrift store, which powers a large network of charitable giving, is this Saturday, March 20, at its new location in Catalina.
Hundreds of families in northern Pima County and throughout Pinal County are unable to afford basic items for children, like a good pair of shoes or a warm jacket in winter.
