WHEN GOOD FRIENDS HOLD A FESTIVE, HOLIDAY LUNCHEON FOR MEMBERS AND THEIR GUESTS. DURING THE LUNCHEON, TRUE STORIES OF HOW JUST A FEW DOLLARS CAN MAKE SUCH A LARGE DIFFERENCE TO PEOPLE IN NEED ARE SHARED. THE TIME COMMITMENT IS A SINGLE LUNCH HOUR, BUT THE IMPACT PROVIDED BY MEMBER AND GUEST DONATIONS CAN LAST A LIFETIME.
MILLION DOLLARS RAISED SINCE 1987
PLUS PEOPLE ASSISTED EACH YEAR
Box springs and mattresses, door locks for battered women, psychiatric counseling, tools for a carpenter so he can work, orthopedic shoes, camp and daycare fees, air conditioners, medical expenses, utility payments, car repairs – these are only a few of the many ways Good Friends reaches out to help those less fortunate and in desperate situations in our community. The program centers around actual situations where Good Friends has helped an individual or family in a challenging situation. The impact provided by member and guest donations can last a lifetime and help people move in a more positive direction. Since our inception, we have raised over $3,000,000 which we have contributed to the Mecklenburg County community. We hope you will help us continue this tradition by joining us and making a difference for those who are less fortunate and need a hand from a Good Friend.
