One hundred percent of the donations will be used to provide shoes, coats, clothing, emergency dental and emergency medical care to children in need throughout the year, as well as help make possible the annual Christmas Party.
Outside of the holiday season, Goodfellows works with the local school systems to provide new clothing to students who would otherwise have to wear worn out items. Goodfellows also helps local children when emergencies such as tornadoes, floods and house fires arise.
All online payments to Goodfellows are done securely through PayPal and all donations go directly to local children in need — the same as donations made in person or by mail. Online donations to the Goodfellows Club can be made at goodfellowsclubofowensboro.org/contribute.
Contributions to the Goodfellows Club can be mailed to: Goodfellows Club, Messenger-Inquirer, P.O. Box 1480, Owensboro, KY 42302. Donations can also be dropped off at the newspaper office at 1401 Frederica St.
