The Chatham Goodfellows 63rd annual porchlight campaign has concluded for another year. The Board of Directors are very pleased with the great turnout. Over 530 volunteers canvased the neighbourhoods of Chatham and collected enough non-perishable food to fill over 90 banana boxes, and enough new toys to filled 60 banana boxes. In addition to the toys and food, over $41,900.00 in cash was donated, which is identical to the 2016 porchlight amount. 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”.
