Goodfellows has been supporting those in need in the Raleigh community since 1934. This effort, led by the Raleigh Jaycees, started as a holiday food drive for those impacted by the Great Depression, ensuring families would have food through the holidays and winter months.

Today Goodfellows brings Christmas to the less fortunate children of Raleigh with a day of one-on-one attention filled with a shopping spree for their basic needs, a traditional holiday feast with all the trimmings, festivities, gifts and a special visit from Santa Claus. But we need your help to make this day a reality with vans and gas for transportation, food for the feast, and toys for each of these very special children.

There are many ways you or your company can support Goodfellows, from Sponsoring a Goodfellows Child to making a corporate donation. Check out the Upcoming Events, Donate & Sponsor and Volunteer pages to learn more and see how you can be a Goodfellow!
