The Goodfellows Clup will host its annual Soup Day for Kids from 11am – 1pm on Tuesday, November 10 at Settle Memorial United Methodist Church’s ROC.
The annual Soup Day is one of Owensboro’s proudest charitable traditions, and this year is extra special as the Goodfellows Club of Owensboro celebrates 100 years of serving children in need.
Everyone is invited to attend the event and enjoy a delightful lunch of soup, sweets and community spirit. More than 20 restaurants from across the community have donated soups, and many bakeries have donated sweets. Carryout orders are available by calling 270-929-9847.
A donation of at least $5 per person is suggested, and all proceeds go to benefit children in need. The Goodfellows Club is a local volunteer, non-profit organization that provides disadvantaged school children with clothing, emergency dental care, medical services and an annual Christmas Party.
The organization works closely with family and youth resource centers at area schools to identify children with the greatest needs, serving approximately 2,000 every year. The Goodfellows Club has been reaching out to Owensboro-Daviess County’s less fortunate children since 1916 to serve basic needs and give all children the chance to thrive at school and ultimately in life.
