Green Good Neighbors
Letters have gone out to the parents of children that have been to our unit this year with their deadline to submit a request is Wednesday, October 28th. We are asking anyone that would like to buy some Christmas cheer for a child to call us and we will give you a name and some gift suggestions for the child. All wrapped gifts need to be in by Sunday, December 6th between noon and 2pm. If you do not want to shop and wrap we will accept cash gift cards for our volunteers to shop for you.
We will be giving out family grocery cards for their Christmas dinner in the month of December. We could use donated gift cards from Acme, Giant Eagle or other grocery stores in our area. We distribute food gift cards in ten dollar increments based on the size of their family.
Since we are using the gym for the clothing room every Wednesday, it means we do not have an area to set up for the parents to come and pick up Christmas gifts for their children this year. So, your donations will be extra appreciated this year! Parents will remain in their cars for pick up and we will load their gifts into their car for them.
This organization became Good Neighbors.
Our unit is located at Greensburg United Methodist Church, 2161 Greensburg Road in Green Ohio.
They have provided the space for operations and storage, for over 40 years.
We serve clients on Wednesdays from 9 am to 12:00 pm. Our group of volunteers, come from many area churches and community organizations.
They come every Wednesday to process and distribute food, clothing and household items.
We are supported entirely by donations from churches, organizations and individuals in the community.
