1/16/18 The Canton Goodfellows are pleased to report that we again had a very successful “No Child Without a Christmas” campaign. We were able to assist 119 Canton families with 314 children in December, 2017. Our success, year after year, is the result of hundreds of generous community members and businesses coming together to help provide our children with a joyous holiday season. Because our benefactors are too numerous to mention individually, our thanks go out to everyone who:
- Purchased and donated toys, clothing, or gift cards for one or more of our children
- Sent us monetary donations to help fund the food gift cards for our families
- Awarded us grants from your organization or business
- Organized gift drives or fundraisers for our benefit
- Sponsored or attended our Magic/Comedy Show Fundraiser
- Donated food items during our Holiday Market Goodfellows Food Drive
- Donated a holiday meal for our families
- Offered your business as a location for our Goodfellows Paper Sale, sold papers for us, or purchased a paper
- Volunteered to help us analyze each child’s gift bag
- Moved all 314 gift bags wherever we needed them to go
- Packed 119 family food boxes
- Donated lunches, dinners, bottled water, or snacks for our volunteers during our Work Week
Our campaign would not have been a success without all of you! No matter how you helped us, THANK YOU on behalf of our Canton children and their families.
