Let us know how you can help.

Thank You for a successful 21th Goodfellows year 

The Huron Township Goodfellows continues to keep the motto “No Child Without a Christmas” live in our community for the 21th year.  This is achieved by the involvement of the community and the Huron Township Rotary. 

Our Goodfellows program is active all year long, we continue to provide coats, boots and other types of clothing when needed.  We have provided eyeglasses to school children of families that do not have insurance or cannot afford them.  Many times throughout the year the need for food is fulfilled to families through our local food pantry. For these reasons this is what drives the Huron Township Goodfellows, Huron Township Rotary and the hundreds of volunteers to get involved with the program, which is the heart, soul and core to this organization.    

There are many families that look to us to make their holiday a day filled with love and joy knowing someone does care.  The annual Goodfellows paper sale consists of many volunteers; Huron Township Rotary, Fire Department, Police Department, Police Explorers, Police Mounted Unit, Outdoor Challenge, Detroit Intermodal, and many others behind the scenes.  The man hours covering these corners during this fundraiser takes the warmest of hearts of those giving up their personal time, during many very cold winter days.  So families in need may have what they cannot afford.   Those working behind the scenes keep us on track with the collections during this endeavor are also an invaluable assets as well.  Featured stories and photos in this annual paper consist of the Goodfellows volunteers as well as projects and events involving the Huron Township Rotary Club.    

We strive to make sure there is "No Child Without a Christmas" in the community.  This year Goodfellows provided Christmas cheer to 110 families.  Each family received many age-appropriate toys for the children in the household, as well as a food basket customized to their family size, a gift certificate to VJ’s Country Pantry for perishable items, a turkey, potatoes and apples.  Seniors in need also received a food basket, a blanket and a ham donated by a group of men who felt the need to help.  Hats and gloves, stocking suffers toys and books were amongst the many items distributed to the families.  It truly is a spectacular event and is amazing to see a community come together in harmony.     

The Goodfellows was coordinated this year by Helena Lilly, Terri Riopelle and Pam Stano, yet it’s the entire community that bands together each year to help those in need. 

We except cash and food donations all year long.  As of 2014 Huron Township Goodfellows is now a IRS approved 501c3 charity.  Donations are accepted by checks or money orders to: Huron Township Goodfellows P.O. Box 289 New Boston, Mi. 48164.  Food donations are excepted at the community food pantry at Willow United Methodist Church.  Food donations are always needed.   Willow United Methodist Church also runs a clothing give away they call "The Free Style" a couple of times a year, so watch their sign for clothing donation times. 

If you need help, know of a family that needs help or would like to volunteer, please contact either;

Helena Lilly 734-753-4320, Pam Stano 734-955-9510 or Terri Riopelle 734-753-3523. Or e-mail at:

Once again a HUGE and APPRECIATED thank you to everyone involved.
