Taylor Goodfellows are seeking volunteers for upcoming newspaper sale
The Taylor Goodfellows are seeking volunteers to help raise funds to provide Christmas dinner to Taylor families and presents to children.
Volunteers will sell special fund-raising newspapers on the streets of Taylor November 26-28.
The Goodfellows plan to serve 300 families this year, using money raised during two Texas hold'em tournaments. This year's donations would pay for food and toys next year.
Goodfellows President Lanny Hall said the organization has been dormant since 2004, but regrouped last year to serve 60 families. He said referrals for this year will be accepted the Monday after Thanksgiving Day.
Baskets will be picked up starting at 10 a.m. December 16-18 at Papp Park, 9350 Westlake.
To volunteer or submit the name of a family in need, call (313) 295-6240.
Hall said volunteers will gather at 10 a.m. November 6 outside Taylor City Hall for a group photo that will appear in the Goodfellows newspaper. City Hall is located at 23555 Goddard Road.
