Goodfellows is a 501(c)3 organization that was created and is run by the Houston Chronicle. It has provided new holiday toys to needy children for almost 100 years.

Funds are donated by Chronicle readers, employees and business partners and are used entirely to purchase toys. In order to reach families in greatest need, toy recipients are determined though the Texas Health and Human Services Office of Eligibility. Donors are mentioned by name both in the paper and online (unless anonymity is requested), and large donors are thanked publicly. All are deeply appreciated.

Last year, Houston's generosity enabled Goodfellows to provide toys to 116,488 children in 27,740 families.
