The Goodfellows of Lee County are preparing for their Christmas giveaway. Goodfellows’ mission is to give assistance to those in need during the Christmas season. Applications must be filled out in order to qualify for the giveaway.
Some of the places applications may be picked up are the Telegraph, Dixon Public Library and the Food Pantry, and the Goodfellows headquarters in the lower level of the Telegraph building in Dixon, or call me, Clara Harris, at 815-973-5135.
Barrels are placed at the following locations to accept new or like-new toys: Ace Hardware, Anytime Fitness, Dixon City Hall, Dixon Police Department, Culver’s, and Bill and Dick’s Barbershop.
Monetary donations may be left at Bill and Dick’s Barbershop, the Telegraph office and the Goodfellows, or mail to The Goodfellows, P.O. Box 674, Dixon, IL 61021.
Tags to purchase gifts for children are on trees at Culver’s, Anytime Fitness, the Telegraph and Walmart.
Last year, we served more than 1,000 clients at the Christmas season.
Help us make this Christmas season a merry one for those in need. Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season.
