Support Our Mission 2021 Annual Appeal
Each year at this time we reach out to our supporters as a part of our annual appeal. We feel that we have been an asset to our Greater Utica community and especially to the faith community of the Mohawk Valley during the COVID pandemic.
We have been able to continue to offer our support groups for grief, divorce, marriage, and addiction while adding a new group in support of caregivers all during the pandemic. In addition, we have been able to offer our spiritual renewal programs such as Bible study, luncheons, Theology Uncorked and retreats. We were able to host a Sawdust Pasta dinner in honor of St. Joseph and we honored Our Lady in the Rosary Walk. We have made numerous changes to how we present these events and programs in order to keep our guests safe.
We also took the time to make repairs to the kitchen and our lovely chapel which were much needed.
All of our efforts revolve around one theme: to build relationships with God and with others.
But as a friend of The Good News Center you know that our programs are usually free or at cost. And due to the pandemic we have struggled to do fundraising events. Therefore, in order for us to maintain these programs we rely on supporters such as you.
Please consider a donation in order for us to continue these events and programs.
No donation is too small, but if you would like to be a member of the 1992 Society consider a gift of $225.00.
To be a member, complete form and include your full payment of $225 and mail to The Good News Foundation 10475 Cosby Manor Road, Utica, NY 13502.

The 1992 Society
In 2017, The Good News Foundation celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary. The Foundation began in 1992 as the brain child of Deacon John and Elizabeth Droz and Leroy and Hazel Scheidelman. Their idea was to have a foundation whose specific goal was to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Through the years here at the Good News, Jesus’s message has not been one of word only, but has evolved into actions that support the core values espoused in the teachings of Jesus Christ. Jesus teaches to love one another through action. Our work today reflects that message.
To continue the work of Jesus and the vision of the Drozes and Scheidelmans, we launched in our silver jubilee year an appeal. Many individuals answered that appeal by making a donation of $199.20 which enrolls you in the 1992 Society.
