Amid pandemic, Detroit Goodfellows go virtual — how to donate

For the first time in more than 100 years, the Detroit Goodfellows won’t be selling newspapers to fundraise for the holidays. Instead, they’re going virtual.

The Old Newsboys’ Goodfellow Fund of Detroit’s more than 100-year-old annual tradition of Sales Day will take place virtually this year on Monday, Nov. 30. With the organization’s annual Tribute Breakfast, its other major fundraiser, having not occurred this year, more help than ever is needed to reach its annual fundraising goal to ensure it can deliver on its motto and mission of “No kiddie without a Christmas.”

The Detroit Goodfellows’ goal this year is to raise $1 million for the holiday gift package program as well as various other initiatives to benefit Detroit area children in need. So farapproximately $517,376 has been raised to date, which is 51.7% of this year’s goal.

“Even with the trying times of 2020 and working through this pandemic, we are committed to the children of Detroit and anticipate and hope the community, as always, will come through and adjust to the changes for the greater good of the children,” said Daran Carey, president of Detroit Goodfellows.
