Southfield Goodfellows seeking donations for 2021 holiday giving
The Southfield Goodfellows’ annual drive to provide food, clothing, and gifts for low-income families in our community is facing a great challenge this year due to the COVID pandemic. In addition to the families that usually need our help, there are even more families whose hardships have been made worse. The pandemic has necessitated the cancellation of our newspaper drive, reducing our resources (funds, volunteers, and gift/toy donations).
This year (so that families and volunteers are safe), we will only be providing gift cards to low-income families. The Goodfellows will give donated gift cards to families (that were approved via their completed applications) by drive-thru pickup appointments.
Southfield Goodfellows is seeking only monetary donations to purchase gift cards for low-income families and senior citizens that live in Southfield and Lathrup Village. The Goodfellows are asking individuals and organizations to donate by Friday, November 12, 2021.
The Southfield Goodfellows is an all-volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that provides assistance through the coordinated efforts of donors and volunteers. The group works in partnership with the Southfield Human Services Department to identify senior citizens and families with school-aged children who require assistance during the holiday season.
To make a monetary contribution, please donate on Southfield Goodfellows’ secure website at www.southfieldgoodfellows.org or make a check or money order payable to Southfield Goodfellows and mail (early) to P. O. Box 2336, Southfield, MI 48037-2336. For questions, please leave a message on their 24-hour voicemail at (248) 788-5899.
