The Christmas season is fast approaching and with it comes celebrations and dinners with friends and family.  It is also this time of year that we remember those of us that are less fortunate and in need of assistance. 

The Goodfellows have been serving the community for over 100 years.  Each year at this time, people from all walks of life join the “old newsboys” to collect donations to assist those in need.  Many of our beneficiaries of are children and the elderly.  Not since James Brady founded the Goodfellows in 1914 have we had more need to help our fellow man.  Your help will make help us fulfill our promise of “No Child Without a Christmas.”

Volunteers are the backbone of the Goodfellows organization and your generous donation is the foundation of our work.  We would like to extend a sincere thank you for your continued support and invite you to join the Goodfellows for our collection drive this year.  The drive begins Friday, December 4, 2015 and continues throughout December.  Every dollar collected is spent right here in the Hamtramck community.
