Good Neighbors E-Newsletter

    Recently, someone donated items to our food center. As she was leaving, she said that she will always donate items to Good Neighbors, because 20 years ago when she was down on her luck, our volunteers treated her with dignity and respect, helped her so much, and even carried the groceries to her car. She will always be grateful and never forget what Good Neighbors did for her.

Community Support
