As the Goodfellows Club Roll Call approaches its Christmas Day deadline, the organization is on track to surpass its 2020 goal, said Goodfellows President Bob Clark.

As of Wednesday, the organization had reached $84,414.98 — $4,000 ahead of where it was in donations at the same time last year putting the club on track to meet its 2020 goal of $106,000, Clark said.

“It has been amazing,” he said. “We had a big jump today. We had a board meeting yesterday and we found we were well ahead of where we were this time last year. It was unexpected but people have really been stepping up to support us despite the hardships of this year. With the momentum we have right now, I’m hoping that we will not only meet our goal but exceed it. Next week is typically our big week leading into the holiday.”
