COVID has been brutal, but we can take heart that it hasn't dampened our area's spirit of generosity and kindness. The robust Goodfellows donations are proof.
The kids still will find presents under the tree from their grandparents. But the Goodfellows donation is a way to teach them about giving back to the community.
Five years ago, Ernie gave each of his seven children $100 to be used for the benefit of others. Tim chose to donate his to The World-Herald's Goodfellows charity.
“I have watched all the news, and it’s so difficult for families, with so many not being able to be with loved ones when they die.”
The $1,040 Goodfellows donation by the Masimore, Magnuson & Associates accounting firm is a nod on the individual tax form Americans file.
