Monday, December 1, 2014 marked the 101st Annual Goodfellow Sales Day. Members of the Old Newsboys' Goodfellow Fund of Detroit and Detroit Police Officers will gather together to sell special editions of The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press to raise funds for the holiday gift packages and our other programs. Thanks to everyone who bought a paper at our 2013 event - we raised a total of $55,076 towards our goal.
Detroit Goodfellow members, Detroit Police officers and PAWS gathered at the Guardian Building at 10:00 am on December 2, 2013 for the traditional parade through the streets of downtown Detroit. The Renaissance High marching band and the Detroit Police Color Guard also joined in the festivities. Goodfellow members also enjoyed a complimentary breakfast at Fishbones in Greektown. The band members were treated to lunch courtesy of American Coney Island. Thanks to Chase Bank for their help and to the Wayne County Executive Offices for hosting us!
