The Canton Ex-Newsboys Association was formed in 1960 to provide clothing to children in need. All of the money raised — 100 percent — goes to the effort; there are no paid officials or employees, just volunteer members.

The organization has helped more than 52,000 students in Stark County and raised more than $4 million since its inception.
The group — with help from The Repository — produces an annual charity newspaper and members sell them throughout the community. This year’s sale will be Dec. 8.
