Erie Times News Old Newsies

The Erie Times-News Old Newsies have been collecting for the needy in Erie PA since 1937. Each year on the first Friday in December, the Newsies fan out all over Erie PA "selling"  that days Times-News and collecting for the needy. After last years COVID-19 delay, we are back this year to continue our mission.  The Erie Times Newspaper Needy Fund also collects donations from advertisements in the paper and you can continue to donate via our annual Go Fund Me Campaign.
Originally the newsies were former newspaper boys and girls but today it is made up of volunteers, both old newspaper persons and those interested in helping the needy. The goal of the Newsies is to raise funds to provide food for the needy around the December holidays. Approximately 100% of the funds collected are used toward food and the administrative costs are provided by the Erie Times-News Publishing Company.
The Newsies have a long standing partnership  with Erie's Second Harvest Food Bank to purchase food and distribute it to needy families. Please help us make the 2021  Holiday season a time to serve our fellow citizens, many of whom are  experiencing extraordinary challenges this year. God Bless you and be safe...
