Monday Musical Club President Karla Hake provides a check for the Goodfellow Fund in the amount of $1279 to David Holgate, Publisher of The Herald Palladium. This donation was collected by the Monday Musical Club at the 84th Annual Candlelight Vesper Service on December 6, 2015.
The Goodfellow Fund was created to ensure area children would have a present under the Christmas tree. Money is raised annually to provide area residents with a Meijer gift card to be used towards food, presents, and/or everyday needs.
The H-P absorbs all of the administrative costs, ensuring that 100% of the approximately $35,000 in donations are used by the community.
MMC has supported this important local organization with records dating in the 1930’s and doing so through the annual vesper service since 1979.
