1/30/2020  The Canton Goodfellows are pleased to report that we again had a very successful “No Child Without a Christmas” campaign in December. We were able to assist 136 Canton families with 339 children. 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, gift cards, or other items for our campaign
  • Sponsored one or more of our children
  • Sent us monetary donations to help fund food gift cards for our families
  • Awarded us grants from your organization or business
  • Organized gift drives or fundraisers for our benefit
  • Attended one or both of our 5K Run Fundraisers
  • Donated food items during our November Food Drive
  • Volunteered to help us analyze each child’s gift bag
  • Moved all 339 gift bags wherever we needed them to go
  • Packed 136 family food boxes
  • Volunteered to be an Application Pick-Up place
  • Gave us discounts on our printing needs
  • 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.  (Check out the Our Partners page to view our Business Sponsors.)
