Good Neighbor Fund committee have just completed 42
years of helping our Neighbors In Need and since we
are all volunteers who are dedicated and committed
to this worthy cause, 100% of the donations we
receive goes back into the community. The committee
had a very busy and challenging year in 2011 due to
the poor economy and the high unemployment but we
were able to take care of 48 residents in Pelham
throughout the year for their household expenses
including rent, heat, electricity food amounting to
$36,165.00 and during the Christmas season, we
provided toys, clothing and food to 68 families
including 121 children. We had a lot of help along
the way including the Post Office where we
coordinated our 15th Annual Food Drive for the Food
Pantry of Pelham at St. Patrick Parish, our 21st
Annual Sponsor-A-Child program where residents in
town purchase gifts for the children and families
for Christmas and our 42nd Annual Christmas Drive
where volunteers from the various organizations
including: The American Legion Post 100, Veterans of
Foreign Wars Post 10722, St. Patrick Knights of
Columbus Council 6902, the Pelham Firefighters
Association and the Cub Scouts Pack 25 collected
food and cash donations at the Pelham Plaza. I would
also like to thank the Derry/Salem Elks Lodge#2226
for donating food to 21 families including 35
children in Pelham. In addition, we receive
donations throughout the year from businesses,
organizations, schools, churches, families and
individuals. We held our 18th Annual Golf Tournament
and our 42nd Annual Christmas Drive. These donations
and our fundraisers have made it possible to provide
financial assistance to our Pelham residents for
household expenses, the food pantry, and financially
support a menís and womenís shelter who cover
residents of Pelham. In addition, we awarded three
scholarships amounting to $5500.00 to high school
seniors who have a financial need and have been
accepted at a college and over the past twelve
years, we have awarded 15 scholarships amounting to
$35,500.00. The Pelham Good Neighbor Fund received
the VFW Loyalty Award for our volunteer work in
providing financial assistance to our less fortunate
residents. Our slogan is People Helping People where
the people in the community work together and more
importantly care about the people they help. The
committee would like to thank you for your support
and we look forward to being of service to the
community in the year 2012.
