Green Good Neighbors
Green Good Neighbors is a non-profit organization serving southern Summit County, whose purpose is to provide area low-income
families with a monthly emergency food order, gently used clothing, and miscellaneous household items.
Green Good Neighbors is a unit of Good Neighbors of Summit County which operates units throughout the area.
Good Neighbors was founded by a school nurse, Laura McClure in 1957. She saw there were children coming to school who lacked decent clothing,
shoes and warm coats. With the help of a friend, she established an organization to help those who need assistance.
This organization became Good Neighbors.
