In lieu of not having a company Christmas party due to COVID-19, Consolidated Mechanical decided to donate $1,000 to Goodfellows in employees’ names.

“It’s a great organization that has been around for a long time,” said Chuck Thompson, president of Consolidated Mechanical.

Thompson said Goodfellows had been recommended to him by several people because of what the club does for area youngsters.

“They work with youth and provide services to them,” he said. “Everybody in youth services relies on them.”

Thompson said this is the first donation Consolidated Mechanical has made to Goodfellows as a company and hopes to continue the donations in the future.

The donation ran in the Dec. 15 edition of the Messenger-Inquirer.

Consolidated Mechanical is at 2900 Airpark Drive in Owensboro.

Contributions to the Goodfellows Club can be mailed to: Goodfellows Club, Messenger-Inquirer, P.O. Box 1480, Owensboro, KY 42302 or made online at Another link to donate online is Or, text RollCall to 41444.

Because of COVID-19, in-person donations at the Messenger-Inquirer are unavailable at this time.
