FAIRFIELD COUNTY — A challenge has been issued to Fairfield County businesses to give to a Goode cause.
Jonathan Goode of Goode Law Firm in Winnsboro decided to donate five box fans to the Believers and Achievers of Fairfield County’s Fan Fair, a fan drive intended to help the elderly, and is challenging businesses county-wide to match his donation.
“I heard Isola donated five fans, so I went and got some fans” Goode said. “I matched the five donated by Isola.”
Goode said his decision to match Isola’s donation to the Fan Fair prompted another decision.
“I figured I’d issue a challenge to the other businesses,” Goode said.
Ideally, Goode said, he would like to see businesses match the five-fan donation, but said he would be glad to inspire any level of charity with his challenge.
“I challenge them to match, or contribute whatever they can,” Goode said. “The County has a large elderly population. I’m sure they can use whatever help they can get.”
Believers and Achievers of Fairfield County President Darreyl Davis said he was grateful for Goode’s donation and excited by the challenge.
“I think it’s wonderful,” Davis said. “To see members of the community and businesses coming together and taking part in the fan drive.”
Davis emphasized coming together is a critical component of the Fan Fair.
“We’re working together as a community,” Davis said.
Goode expressed admiration for the cause and Believers and Achievers efforts.
“I think it’s great that Mr. Davis’ program is doing something in the community,” Goode said.
The Berliners and Achievers of Fairfield County’s Fan Fair fan drive culminates July 25 at Autozone in Winnsboro. The event will include a fundraising car wash and fish fry.
The Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office is assisting with the event and fan storage. Fans will be distributed based on information provided by Fairfield County Council on Aging.
