"Those who contribute to the less fortunate recognize that man is a fragile creature buffeted by the winds of fate. Behind the mirth and merriment of the Kenosha Christmas Charities is a sensitivity to the human condition and the realization that donating to the disadvantaged is, indeed, giving of one’s self to one’s self."
"For there are few activities more gratifying than serving humanity. To be a Goodfellow is to strive for understanding and to enjoy giving."
–Howard J. Brown
