DETROIT -- The Old Newsboys’ Goodfellow Fund of Detroit announced today it has raised $1,268,720 through its 2011 fundraising campaign, which ended January 31, 2012. This represents 98% of their goal of $1.3 million.

“We are thankful for the continued community support to help the Detroit Goodfellows in its mission to ensure there is ‘No kiddie without a Christmas’,” said Mike Coakley, president of the Detroit Goodfellows.

Of the total amount raised, $43,340 was raised through the 97th Annual Detroit Goodfellows’ Sales Day on November 28. Hundreds of Detroit Goodfellows and Detroit Police officers sold a special “Goodfellow edition” of the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News in various locations throughout the city.

The Detroit Goodfellows distributed 35,000 gift packages through Detroit Police precincts to needy children in Detroit, Hamtramck, Highland Park and River Rouge during December 2011. Funds raised by the local charity pay for the holiday gift boxes.

Founded in 1914, the Detroit Goodfellows is the original and oldest Goodfellow organization and is not affiliated with any other Goodfellow group. It also sponsors an emergency dental program for children, awards scholarships through Wayne State University, provides free shoes to children in need and helps send hundreds of needy children to camp each summer.

Tax-deductible donations are accepted throughout the year and may be sent to: The Old Newsboys’ Goodfellow Fund of Detroit, P.O. Box 44444, Detroit, MI 48244-0444. Donations may also be made using the organization’s secure website: www.detroitgoodfellows.org.

For more information contact Detroit Goodfellows Director Sari Klok-Schneider at (586) 775-6139 or sarigoodfellows@gmail.com.
