Pg Readers Brighten Children's Holidays

Article excerpt

Tens of thousands of needy children are counting on the generosity of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette readers to brighten their Christmases through donations to the Goodfellows Fund.

The goal of the fund, which started in 1947, is to make sure that every child has a toy under the tree on Christmas morning. Your donations support the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, which will distribute thousands of toys to needy children this holiday season, and the Salvation Army's Treasures for Children program.

Please help. Make a tax-deductible donation to Goodfellows by using the coupon on this page, or online by visiting
