The Chatham Goodfellows “No Child without a Christmas” campaign began in 1954 and has continued throughout the years. Through donations and volunteer efforts, the Goodfellows have helped many in the Chatham-Kent area on Christmas morning, ensuring there are toys for children and food for a holiday meal. Over their 60-year history, the Chatham Goodfellows, along with other service groups have provided Christmas to the less fortunate throughout the community.
Last year, more than 1400 food baskets and toys for 1100 children were distributed, with hopes that this year will bring in similar numbers.
