Over the last few years we have been able to incorporate other volunteer opportunities. We have been successful in a Adopt a Family Program. With the help of local businesses, the business is given a needy family to support during Christmas. We ensure that the family does qualify for the program and in fact in Need. If interested in "Adopting a Family" please email or call.
Southgate Goodfellows primarily operate seasonally, beginning in late summer with our School Backpack and School Supply Program and then carries over into the Holiday season which for us begins in September of each year and usually ends in Mid to late December. Please feel free to contact us via email for volunteer opportunities.
