With the delivery of packed boxes to needy families on Saturday, the Tribune's Goodfellows program has come to a successful conclusion this year.
Chief Goodfellow Ryan Murken said minor tweaks to the program helped improve efficiency in most areas.
When a program has the longevity of Goodfellows, Murken said it generally runs smoothly and consistently each year, but minor changes can help streamline activities.
Organizers used sign-up sheets to better manage the volunteers and volunteer hours. Murken said this allowed volunteers' time to be spread out to cover each aspect of packing the boxes and distributing them.
