The Kenosha Christmas Charities, Inc. (The Goodfellows) is committed to serving disadvantaged children in Kenosha County by purchasing toys, food and winter outer garments for distribution through a consortium of social agencies (Holiday House). The goal is to reach every needy child in Kenosha County each winter.
Overall the Goodfellows serve about 3,000 children each year. Our team purchases coats, mittens, gloves, hats and scarves at discounted prices throughout the year and receive donation from various agencies that hold collections that help add to our inventory. The used garments are cleaned by Marino’s Master Dry Cleaning, at no cost, to ensure the outer garments are in mint condition when ready for distribution in late October. We also purchase toys at a deep discount and food cards to be distributed in early December.
