Every year, or for the last few anyway, the Clarkston Rotary has gathered underprivileged kids in the area and given them shoes. Over the years boots, gloves, hats and socks have been added. One of the fundraisers for this program is the Goodfellows newspaper the previous weekend.
The distribution was at Oakwood Woods Baptist Church on Maybee. oaklandwoodschurch.com It was really great to see so many volunteers from the community and mostly to see the faces of the kids as they got to choose a new pair of shoes or boots.
Next time you see Goodfellows selling papers in the middle of the street in the winter, give them a couple extra bucks. They will do something good with it.
I’ll help again next year.
