KEARNEY — Today’s Goodfellows tally stands at $61,619, thanks to donations of $ 6,855. The money will be used to deliver gifts on Christmas to needy children and to provide them with milk, warm clothes and school supplies to help them throughout the year.
The public is invited to wrap gifts at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds. The public also is invited to assist on Tuesday with Christmas morning deliveries. The deliveries begin promptly at 8 a.m. at the fairgrounds when volunteers will pick up boxes of toys and goodies to take to needy families. Anyone can help with wrapping and delivery.
Donors who want to support Goodfellows can give by visiting the Goodfellows’ website and donating online using PayPal. Donations also will be accepted throughout the holidays at the Kearney Hub, P.O.
