The deadline to apply for Goodfellows and/or Christmas for Kids was on December 1st. Notification letters are now in the mail and should start arriving at homes starting today. Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page on the Goodfellows information site if you have questions regarding the project(s).

If you didn’t get an opportunity to sign up through the application process, you may still be able to receive food and/or toys as a Walk-In on Saturday beginning at Noon. Please be aware that if you are a walk-in, you will still need to provide the means testing information: a copy of 2013’s IRS W2 formOR a copy of your previous two pay stubs, OR a copy of your government assistance award letter (if applicable).

If you returned a Christmas for Kids or Goodfellows application before the deadline, but did not include the means testing information, your application was not approved. You are welcome to come to the distribution as a walk-in, but you still must supply the means testing information outlined above.

The distribution of food and toys will take place on December 20th. The doors will open at approximately 7:45am and we’ll get started at approximately 8:00am. A Friday night distribution is set up for Goodfellows only, mainly those single-person or food-only families. No toys from Christmas for Kids will be distributed on that Friday evening. If you receive a Friday letter and you also signed up for Christmas for Kids, you can come on Saturday at no penalty. It’ll be just fine.


  • Letters have already been mailed out, so if you have moved, you don’t need to update your address with us. We don’t need it anymore.
  • We are not Farm Bureau so please don’t call them to speak to us. Our phone number is below.


You can contact us using the form below or call us at (870) 931-5252 and leave a message. Please note, though, that due to the volume of calls, responses to voicemails may be greatly delayed and email is probably a quicker solution.
