The Chatham Goodfellows 60th annual porchlight campaign has concluded for another year. The Board of directors are very pleased with the great turnout of volunteers, and the generous citizens of Chatham-Kent. Chatham-Kent residents donated over 50 banana boxes fully of toys and non-perishable food. In addition to the toys and food, over $36,500.00 in cash was donated, which is $1,000.00 more than 2013. The Chatham Goodfellows Board of Directors are appreciative of the continued support and generosity of the volunteers and the Chatham-Kent residents to ensure “No Child Without a Christmas”.
