Windsor Goodfellows Holiday Giving & Christmas Food Boxes

Volunteers at the Windsor Goodfellows work hard to ensure a merry Christmas for everyone.

We believe the holidays are a truly special time of the year. Since 1910, our mission has been to ensure that as many families as possible in Windsor – Essex County feel the spirit, warmth and joy of the Holiday Season.

Christmas Food Boxes

Each year in late November, a team of Goodfellows spread out across the city of Windsor to sell our traditional holiday newspaper, collecting donations to fund Christmas meal boxes and food vouchers for thousands of families who would go without. The Windsor Goodfellows food boxes contain Christmas treats and a gift certificate from Metro/Food Basics.
