Our Mission

With the motto of “Assistance Without Delay” and a creed of “100% for Charity”, the Old Newsboys are driven by a straight-forward, yet important mission: “No Child Shall Miss School for Lack of Shoes or Coat”. Our goal has been the same since our founding in 1929: “Immediate Emergency Service When a School Administrator, Police Officer, Fire Official, or Neighbor Reports a Child in Need”. The Old Newsboys is not a substitute for public welfare or other various social agencies, and does not undertake continuing clients. Instead, it functions without administrative delay to afford speedy, temporary service.
