The Neighbors Foundation exists only
through financial and food donations. It is made up of community
volunteers. The Officers, Directors and workers are all volunteers. All
of your tax deductible contributions are used for helping others. We
cannot help our neighbors without your help!
GRATITUDE MESSAGE to OUR DONORS in 2020
** Thank you, Thank you, Thank you **
COVID-19 and the pandemic restrictions in 2020 has not enabled the Neighbors Foundation to receive much of our “regular” food donations that our organization has come to rely upon (i.e. The Postal Workers Food Drive, Little League team collections, Boy Scouts, etc.) Many donors, some new and some longtime supporters, stepped up and showed their support with very generous donations mailed directly to our PO Box 155, donations made using PayPal via our website, www.GINeighbors.org, and numerous food donations dropped off at many local churches and via many mini food drives throughout the community. These generous monetary and food donations enable us to continue to support our Grand Island neighbors who find themselves in need. Each donation helps us to provide help to our neighbors and makes a big difference.
The entire board of directors and our many volunteers express our sincere gratitude and thanks to all of you!
We encourage donations sent by check to
Neighbors Foundation, P. O. Box 155, Grand Island NY 14072
or donate now via our website with a major credit card by clicking the
"Donate Now" button below. The Grand
Island Neighbors Foundation is an IRS authorized 501(c)(3) charitable
organization; all donations are fully tax deductible.
Donations are especially welcome at the
Holiday Season, through our ‘Share Your Happiness’ campaign, where all
donations are acknowledged in local media and Internet sites (although
anonymous donations are, of course, welcome).
SHARE YOUR HAPPINESS CAMPAIGN
Dear Friends and generous supporters of the Neighbors Foundation,
Again in 2020, we look to our friends and generous supporters of the Neighbors Foundation in our planning for the Annual Holiday Distribution to the less fortunate family members on Grand Island. For over 40 years, we have provided food pantry gift baskets and gift donations to our families in need, all made possible from donations from various groups and organizations. Our primary means of donations has been and continues to be financial contributions; we do also accept gift card donations (we can only accept Tops or Target cards) should you desire to purchase and donate gift cards to the campaign. Those cards could be mailed to P.O. Box 155, Grand Island NY 14072.
Thank you for your consideration in participating in our Annual Holiday Distribution Campaign. Last year we provided food pantry baskets for 60 families and we provided gift cards for parents to use on their 110 children. Your donation to us helps to make a difference in the lives of these families and these children during this holiday season. With an all-volunteer staff, be assured that all of your donation is used to help local Island families in need. And for that, we thank you again.
WHERE/HOW TO MAKE A MONETARY DONATION
For your convenience, you can simply click the “DONATE NOW” button below to make a monetary donation with a major credit card. Checks can also be mailed to the Neighbors Foundation at P.O. Box 155, Grand Island, NY, 14072.
We believe that this community, by thinking of their neighbors even as they themselves face tougher times, can really be a grand island to live in. The Neighbors Foundation, with community help, will make it so.
President, Neighbors Foundation
Maintaining a useful and current food
pantry requires a steady supply of donated non-perishable food,
toiletries and household supplies. The local Postal Workers bring us a
successful drive every spring, school children donate at the Holiday
season, groups such as Little League, Scouts and businesses help.
Individual donations are equally welcome. Unfortunately, the Foundation
has no facilities for safely handling perishable food, and cannot accept
such donations, no matter how well-intentioned. Contact President, David Conboyat 716-773-7476, or Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
