Join Our Volunteers
in Action

Filling 30,000 holiday gift packages for deserving children in the
Detroit area is just one way you can help.

Watch how our volunteers carefully fill and organize all the generous care packages for the deserving kids of Detroit and surrounding communities.


Doll Program

Since 1924, carefully and imaginatively dressed dolls have been included in holiday gift boxes given to little girls ages 4–9. Over the years, thousands of devoted volunteers have creatively dressed tens of thousands of dolls for deserving young ladies.


All Detroit Goodfellows are volunteers, working to fulfill our mission of No Kiddie Without a Christmas. Your support is more important than ever to make sure no child is forgotten at the holidays and all year long. The Goodfellows thank you and so do the children. To apply for membership, fill out the form found HERE.


This special category is for members between the ages 19-29. The cost to participate is $10 per year and we ask that you also donate 10 hours of community service.  Once you complete the application form, you’ll be contacted by a NextGen member with more information about volunteer opportunities and how you can best support the Detroit Goodfellows.

Package Assembly

Assembling 30,000 holiday gift boxes broken down into 20 categories and age groups takes organization and the help of many. This is usually done in October. We are always looking for willing hands to help us with this important step in making sure the children have a gift to open for the holiday. If you or your company would like to donate a day to be part of the most amazing assembly line in the city, contact Sari Klok-Schneider at 586-775-6139 or via email.
