‘Together, we can make a difference’
“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” - Maya Angelou
This year, as Windsor celebrates its 125th birthday, we have shared fond memories of our city and collective images that are uniquely our own.
One such image is that of the Windsor Goodfellows, front and centre each year, marking the approach of the holiday season with the sale of their special newspaper. Stationed on busy streets, despite often cold and unpredictable weather, this small army of volunteers truly represent the meaning of selfless giving.
Inspired by Thomas May’s well-known illustration “Forgotten” of a little girl in a tattered coat waiting for Santa, the Goodfellows know that no child, no friend, or neighbour should go without.
And, the people of Windsor always answer the call.
Your donations support the annual Christmas food basket and school breakfast programs and help to fill the shelves of the food bank. Your yearly enthusiastic support of the Windsor Goodfellows speaks volumes about the caring and giving nature of our city.
I want to thank the Windsor Goodfellows for their continued service to the community, and you, for taking a moment to roll down your window and give what you can.
Individually we can give; together we can make a difference.
