It takes over 150 people to successfully run the Goodfellows program each year. If you would like to be a part of the Goodfellows effort, just add your name and email address to our Volunteers ListServ on the left-side menu under Newsletters (follow the green arrow below). We'll keep you posted on upcoming activities and volunteer opportunities. Children under the age of 18 who would like to be involved with the Goodfellows should contact the Junior Optimist Club at their school. For more information about Junior Optimist programs, visit www.f2hjunioroptimists.org.

  • Elves are people who help in the warehouse between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We sort food, toys and books, check expiration dates, and handcraft individual gift and food boxes for each child, family or senior receiving assistance. Must be 18 or older.  Monday - Friday from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm starting on the Monday after Thanksgiving through the Saturday before Christmas. If Christmas falls on a weekend, we finish on Saturday  one week earlier.
  • Reindeer are people who help out on delivery day, the Saturday before Christmas. We meet at the warehouse at 9:00 am, and load cars and make deliveries to hundreds of children, families and seniors in Farmington and Farmington Hills.  We always finish before noon. We need over 200 volunteers on Delivery Day. We also break down the warehouse as soon as it is empty and get ready for our move out that morning
  • Goodfellows work from September through January to make this program a success. Some Goodfellows also volunteer at the Neighborhood House Food Pantry throughout the year. If you would like to volunteer your time, and give back to the community, we've got an opening for you!
  • Mrs. Claus Staff are high school students or better with neat handwriting to help write thank you notes to donors on the morning of Delivery Day Saturday  (9:00 am till finished) at the offices of the Goodfellows warehouse. Our volunteers write over 2,000 Thank You notes in jst a few hours. Students can earn up to 3 community service hours toward their high school graduation cord for their time and effort!

You can also email us or call (248) 986-1111 and offer your help TODAY! The warehouse is at a different location every year, but always opens on the Monday after Thanksgiving and closes the Sunday before Christmas, hours are 10am-3pm.
