Our mission is: "No Child or Senior without a Christmas".

warehouse 2016The application deadline for the 2018 holiday season was November 30. If you missed the application deadline, but need assistance, one of these local agencies may be able to help.

This holiday season, we expect to once again serve over 400 children, families and seniors in Farmington and Farmington Hills. Our all-volunteer efforts rely on the kindness and generosity of local residents and businesses to serve the most needy in our community in challenging times. We are always in need of canned or boxed non-perishable foods (expiration date 2019 or beyond), new books and new toys.

Cash donations are greatly appreciated and critical to our mission. They are used to purchase cards which can be used at local grocery and clothing stores for our families and seniors in need of assistance. We are a 501c3 public charity, and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent permitted by IRS regulations. Donate online or mail to:

Farmington Area Goodfellows

During the winter, spring and summer months, the Goodfellows collect canned and boxed foods, paper products and personal care items to stock the Farmington/Farmington Hills Neighborhood House Food Pantry. Collection boxes are located in these city buildings and local businesses:

Farmington City Hall
Farmington Hills City Hall
Farmington Community Library (Downtown Farmington branch only)

Our warehouse location changes each year based on the availability of a vacant building, and the incredibly kind generosity of community business leaders who donate the warehouse space. Each year we open on the Monday after Thanksgiving, and move out on the weekend after Christmas. We share the space with Oakland County Toys for Tots which serves over 60 communities. Goodfellows office hours are 10:00am to 2:00pm. The Toys for Tots staff are there throughout the day and evening. Both will accept donations on behalf of either charity.
