GOODFELLOWS FOOD DRIVE
The Goodfelloows Food Drive is an annual charity service program that is run by our post, that provides a basket of food, consisting of about four meals, to a family or individual in need every Christmas season. Here is what our Media Partner in this charity, Greenville News, has to say:
For our drive in 2017:
Our annual Goodfellows Food Drive for this Christmas season was a success, with over 1000 boxes of food distributed. Our level of donations was low this year, though. Please consider a donation of any amount to this worthy cause.
Donations may be mailed to:
The Goodfellows Club, P.O. Box 133, Greenville, SC 29602.
Credit or debit card donations are accepted by contacting:
Commander Ed Brannen, (864) 979-9934.
Read what the Greenville News, our media partner in this effort, has to say:
Goodfellows starts on Thanksgiving day. We will have a posting donors in the Greenville News again this year. If you want to participate in Goodfellows this year we will be packing food boxes on December 22nd at 6 pm, passing out the boxes on the 23rd at 8 am and receiving donation anytime. Our financial goal is $37,000. The cost of a box of food is just over $31. We will distribute over 1000 boxes.
If you know of a post member or veteran that can be blessed by receiving a box of food please contact the Post Adjutant, Don Patterson. One position we would like to have this year is delivery. Several of our members cannot make their way to the TD Center and needs their food delivered. Please contact us if you can help on the 23rd.
Adjutant, Post 3
