I am writing on behalf of the 45,000 children who received holiday gift packages from the Old Newsboys' Goodfellow Fund of Detroit this past Christmas.
The entire Goodfellow organization is so grateful for the overwhelming support we received from the community.
Thanks to the hundreds of people who purchased a newspaper from a Goodfellow member or a Detroit Police Officer on our very snowy sales day last Dec. 2.
Thanks also to the hundreds more who made contributions through the mail. Your donations enabled us to achieve our goal of $1.75 million for 2002 and helped to ensure our pledge, "No Kiddie without a Christmas."
The residents of the metropolitan Detroit area remain very supportive of the mission of the Old Newsboys' Goodfellow Fund and we are truly grateful.
Thanks on behalf of all of the children in Detroit, Highland Park and Hamtramck who benefited from your generosity.
