The single mother of three was not working for a time because of health problems. Once she was able to return to the workforce, her first check covered the family's utilities and food costs. But there was nothing left for rent. Goodfellows paid the $500 rent bill, and the family was able to move forward. The World-Herald's Goodfellows charity helps with onetime emergency payments to families throughout the year and with grocery vouchers at Christmastime.
Goodfellows provides assistance to thousands of families each year. It has raised and distributed nearly $10 million since 1945. With The World-Herald paying all administrative costs, every dollar donated to Goodfellows goes directly to disadvantaged families – helping them with one-time urgent needs, providing holiday meals and providing funds for clothing, shoes and coats.
