On Friday, Dec. 6, 2013, more than 500 Old Newsboys
Goodfellow Association volunteers will be in Toledo area
Andersons, Franklin Park Mall, grocery stores, bowling centers,
shopping centers, credit unions, and various other local
retailers to “hawk” the organization’s annual Charity Edition
newspaper. The Old Newsboys will not be on any street corners.
The 2013 goal is $200,000.
This year marks the 84th consecutive year that the Newsboys men
and women volunteers will brave the wind and cold to make a
positive impact in a child’s life. Our purpose: to provide
immediate help whenever a school administrator, police officer,
or neighbor reports that a child is in need of shoes, a coat,
food, or emergency medical attention.
Contributions to the annual Charity Paper Sale make this
assistance possible. The Old Newsboys Goodfellow Association is
one of Toledo’s 100% Charity. This means that every single
dollar raised is used to provide clothing, food, or medical care
- no questions asked!
Last year, the Old Newsboys spent more than $200,000 on shoes
and coats for children, provided nearly 1,000 Toledo area
families with food baskets for Christmas, funded Drug Awareness
Programs, and awarded scholarships to high school seniors who
would not have had the chance to attend college.
According to John Mattimoe, Old Newsboys Goodfellow
Association 2013-2014 President, “The Old Newsboys foresee a
need of more than $200,000 in order to provide Toledo and
surrounding area children from more than 65 different schools
with coats and shoes. Calls are already coming in, as the cooler
weather conditions develop. We must raise these funds in order
to meet the growing need.”
To those who help - THANK YOU!
