BYRON – Exelon delivered 100 gifts to the Goodfellows of Lee County.

After seeing an article on Goodfellows in The Telegraph, Dennis Stowell of Lee County asked employer, Exelon, for a donation.

Exelon has a tree where employees choose gift tags and then buy  gifts for children.

Once all the tags were taken, Stowell asked Exelon to reach out to surrounding counties and it agreed.

Stowell then delivered three large bags of toys clothing, and books to Goodfellows.

The gifts will go to families who are in need.
