The Southfield Goodfellows are an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. The primary goal of the Southfield Goodfellows is to assure that no child in Southfield or Lathrup Village is forgotten during the Holiday Season. We also assist in meeting the food requirements of needy families and senior citizens in the community during this special time of year.
Our secondary goal is to provide assistance to individuals year-round through our Urgent Needs Program. This assistance for unforeseen hardship is conducted on a case-by-case basis, as long as funds are available. The City of Southfield Human Services Department manages the program on behalf of the Southfield Goodfellows.
How you can help!
No child or senior should be forgotten during the holiday season.
There are plenty of opportunities for the community to participate in assisting the Southfield Goodfellows - you can:
| Donate money to the Southfield Goodfellows for the purchase of clothing gift cards for children and food gift cards for families, to supplement the items collected and purchased.
| Sponsor a Gift Giving Tree - the Southfield Goodfellows will provide your organization with paper holiday ornament tags, each listing the first name, age and gender of a specific child in the community - to purchase new items or select from a suggested wish list.
| Sew, purchase, knit or crochet doll clothes - the Southfield Goodfellows purchase dolls, which individuals and/or groups then dress them as gifts.
Any one of these activities is a great way for either groups or individuals to lend a helping hand. To help or for further information, contact: Southfield Goodfellows, P.O. Box 2336, Southfield, MI 48037, (248) 788-5899 or visit our website at www.southfieldgoodfellows.org
