Welcome to the online home of the Dearborn Goodfellows! Please take a moment to explore our website and discover how you can make a difference for a needy Dearborn child!

The Dearborn Goodfellows are a committed group of volunteers dedicated to providing assistance to Dearborn children in need. We are mostly noted for Christmas gifts to needy Dearborn children, as our motto suggests, “No Dearborn child without a Christmas!” But our organization is so much more than that! The Dearborn Goodfellows provides year around support for needy Dearborn children facing exceptional hardships and emergencies. Included on our website is an assistance application that may be submitted online or printed and mailed.

Established as The Good Cheer club in 1922, the name was changed and incorporated as the Dearborn Goodfellows in 1938. This longevity exemplifies the dedicated and committed efforts of generations of volunteers and the selflessness nature of our community partners and local sponsors. It is through the unfortunate fate, of no fault of their own, that a Dearborn child may be found in need. It is this constant need that the Dearborn Goodfellows seek to brighten the life of a child!

The community and business leaders recognized throughout this website embrace this concept and make it possible for volunteers to extend a hand to a needy child. We ask you consider our sponsors and community leader’s foremost; whenever and wherever possible!

Our website has something for everyone! From volunteering, contributing and communicating, this website is for, and about our children! Thank you for visiting! Give often! Give generously! Volunteer! Refer a child in need! Patronize our sponsors! Most of all help us help a needy Dearborn Child!
