The Goodfellows Holiday Season

Our mission is: "No Child or Senior without a Christmas".

canned foodsThe assistance application deadline for the 2017 Holiday Season has passed. If you missed the deadline, but still require assistance, one of these local agencies may be able to help.

This holiday season, we expect to once again serve over 400 children, families and seniors in Farmington and Farmington Hills. Our all-volunteer efforts rely on the kindness and generosity of local residents and businesses to serve the most needy in our community in these challenging economic times. We are in need of canned or boxed non-perishable foods (expiration date 2018 or beyond), new books, batteries and new toys.

Cash donations are greatly appreciated and critical to our mission. They are used to purchase gift cards to local grocery and clothing stores for our families and seniors in need of assistance. We are a 501c3 public charity, and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent permitted by IRS regulations. Donate online or mail to:food maxfield 2015
