The Ferndale Goodfellows took in 75 applications for assistance this holiday season. Some were from seniors who just needed food, and others were from families with children. Ferndale Fire Sergeant Ken Kronner said that each applicant received a food certificate to Ferndale Foods located at Nine Mile and Livernois as well as a voucher to 1 of 3 restaurants in the city: Hambo’s, Sam’s Ferndale Grill or Hilton Cafe. The amount was determined by the size of the family. Each child received a $30 gift card to Target.
