Porchlight Campaign up in 2018

The Chatham Goodfellows 64th annual porchlight campaign has concluded for another year.

The Board of Directors are very pleased with the great turnout.   Over 550 volunteers canvased the neighbourhoods of Chatham and collected enough non-perishable food to fill over 90 banana boxes, and
enough new toys to filled 70 banana boxes.  In addition to the toys and food, over $44,500.00 in cash was donated, which is $3,000.00 more than the 2017 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”

Chatham Goodfellows appreciate the wonderful support we receive each year to ensure there is “No Child Without a Christmas”.
