More than 40 years ago, a group of "fellows" in the Farmington Exchange Club decided to combine forces with other service clubs in the Farmington area to provide assistance to needy families around Christmas time. The results of the first year were gratifying, and the GOODFELLOWS MOVEMENT was on its way!
Until 1973, the Farmington Exchange Club sponsored the Goodfellows, and today this club, now known as the Xemplar Club, is the still the driving force behind the program. Many individuals felt there was a need to establish a separate organization with its own set of bylaws. Although changes have been made over the years, the objective remains the same, "No Child or Senior without a Christmas".
Each year, we serve hundreds of families including at-risk children and seniors in Farmington and Farmington Hills. If you or your family would like to volunteer some time to work with our organization, or are in need of assistance from our organization, please contact us.
