Apply For Help
If your family needs help for this Christmas, you must apply using our application process. You MUST complete in full and submit online. Applications for 2020 Assistance are made available September 13, 2020, and the deadline is 5:00pm on November 6th, 2020.
Download and print the application HERE.
If you choose to print the application and turn it in, you will need to drop it off at the Jefferson Barns Community Center. This 2020 season, City Hall will not be receiving applications on our behalf.
This application is for WESTLAND RESIDENTS WITH CHILDREN ONLY, and proof of residency is required. Read the application carefully and complete it in full. Approved families will receive a gift voucher which will allow you to shop for your child’s specific needs. You are required to sue the voucher appropriately for toys, clothing, books or other age/child appropriate items. Each voucher has a specific value and you are responsible for any amount above it. The Goodfellows receive and review copies of your purchases. If it is found that you used the voucher improperly or spent more than the allotted amount you risk being denied future help from the Goodfellows. You will also receive a food voucher for a Heartland Market, local grocery store. Please use all vouchers by their deadlines.
Lastly, there are many agencies that provide Christmas assistance – Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, etc. DO NOT APPLY to more than 1 program for Christmas assistance. The Goodfellows will cross reference our list of applicants with lists from these organizations. You risk losing all assistance by applying to more than one program.
Merry Christmas to your family and may the New Year be better for us all!
