Once again, the Star-Telegram is asking for gifts from readers to support our Goodfellow Fund to bring joy to needy children this holiday season.

Every $50 gift you send provides school clothes and shoes for another needy child. We have 15,000 children we’d like to serve, so our goal is to raise $800,000. (Please donate at goodfellowfund.org.)

But we also know a lot of people in the community are helping in so many other ways at this time of year.

We’d like your help telling the stories of the elves all around us — the good-hearted folks young and old, volunteering and giving of themselves, lightening the load and brightening the lives of others.

Call them Holiday Helpers. With your help, we’ll recognize these exceptional people this holiday season.

Send nominations — a maximum 300 words — to letters@star-telegram.com. Tell us about a Holiday Helper you know and how that person is spreading cheer.

Include your name, home address and phone number. (We’ll only print your name and city.) Send photos if you have them.

And be watching for Christmas Day when we’ll identify this season’s super Holiday Helper — someone whose generosity of spirit sets an example for all of us.

Submit nominations until Dec. 20.
