The St. Clair Shores Goodfellows organization is a non profit volunteer group formed in 1926 to ensure that no child goes without a Christmas. The Goodfellows are supported entirely by donations from the community.
Their only fundraiser is their annual newspaper sale. This past Saturday more than 150 volunteers hit the street corners of St. Clair Shores, braving the cold and trying to dodge the traffic, to sell newspapers for the S.C.S. Goodfellows. Many different groups also donate their time including the St. Clair Shores Fire Department who generously donate some space at their firehouse for the Goodfellows to set up their headquarters for the day!
This annual event helps approximately 125 St. Clair Shores families. The motto: No Kiddie Without a Christmas
I volunteered to help out and sell papers, I was at the corner of 12 mile and Jefferson for 5 hours selling newspapers. A BIG Thank You to all of the people that bought a paper that day, no matter what corner you bought it from. I was truly amazed at the amount of the generous donations I received. It was such a good feeling, contributing and helping out this wonderful organization. This was my first year doing this, but I have a feeling it definitely won't be my last.
