The 2013 Holiday Season
The 2013 Farmington Area Goodfellows have started planning our holiday assistance program. Our mission is: "No Child or Senior without a Christmas". The Goodfellows are in great need of canned/boxed foods, new toys and new books to help support our annual Holiday Assistance Program for families and seniors living in our communities of Farmington and Farmington Hills. We will have collection boxes at both Farmington City Hall and downtown Farmington Public Library located on Liberty Street in Farmington, Farmington Hills City Hall and the Costick Center located on West Eleven Mile Road in Farmington Hills. These locations will accept your donations from November 25, 2013 - December 20, 2013. Our year-round collections boxes are at both City Halls, the Farmington Public Library (downtown Farmington branch).
The deadline for submitting applications for assistance is 5:00pm on December 6, 2013. Applications cannot be accepted after that date.
