Tens of thousands of needy children are counting on the generosity of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette readers to brighten their Christmases through donations to the Goodfellows Fund.

The goal of the fund, which started in 1947, is to make sure that every child has a toy under the tree on Christmas morning. Your donations support the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, which will distribute thousands of toys to needy children this holiday season, and The Salvation Army's Treasures for Children program.

Please help. Make a tax-deductible donation to Goodfellows by using the coupon on this page, or online by visiting www.post-gazette.com/goodfellows.

Every donation will be acknowledged in the newspaper.

How to get toys

The Toys for Tots program will hold open houses next month to distribute toys to parents and guardians of needy children.

They will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 13 and 14 at Guardian Storage Solutions, 2839 Liberty Ave., Strip District. The Marines request that families register no later than today online at this address: http://north-versailles-pa.toysfortots.org/local-coordinator-sites/lco-sites/default.aspx, or by calling 412-852-9994. Those families will have priority on the distribution dates.

Parents and guardians are required to bring photo ID for themselves, a birth certificate for each child (children up to age 12 are eligible) and proof of need: an EBT card, Access card or SNAP card.

Those wishing to volunteer can visit the Toys for Tots website listed above or www.pittsburghcares.org.
