Goodfellows provide food, toys for hundreds of area families

Dozens of volunteers helped make the holiday season much more meaningful for hundreds of area families on Sunday. During their weekend-long holiday packing and distribution, they fed and provided toys for residents in Huron Township. Photos courtesy of Gregory Graham.

Once again, we thank the good hearted citizens of Huron Township. Through their generous support, 117 families were supplied with a turkey and fixings for Christmas dinner, over 200 children received toys and clothing, and seniors also received blankets.

“We live in an amazing place,” Pam Stano, one of the organizers, said.  “It takes the work of over a hundred and fifty people, the donations of money from citizens and businesses, and an amazing amount of running around to make this happen, and yet when we ask, there are always people willing to help.”

Terri Riopelle, another program organizer, added: “We also need to thank Marine Corp Toys for Tots, the Huron Township Rotary, Huron School District, and Outdoor Challenge for donating time and facilities.”
