Good Neighbor Fund Committee has just completed 43
years of helping our Neighbors In Need. The
committee had a another busy and challenging year in
2012 due to the poor economy and the high
unemployment but we were able to take care of 37
residents in Pelham throughout the year for their
household expenses including rent, heat, electricity
and food amounting to $26,120 and during the
Christmas season, we provided toys, clothing and
food to 26 families including 61 children. We had a
lot of help along the way including the Post Office
where we coordinated our 16th Annual Food Drive for
the Food Pantry of Pelham at St. Patrick Parish, our
22nd. Annual Sponsor-A-Child program where residents
in town purchase gifts for the children and families
for Christmas and our 43rd. 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. In
addition, we received donations throughout the year
from the business community, organizations, schools,
churches, families and individuals. We held our 19th
Annual Golf Tournament and our 43rd. Annual
Christmas Drive. These donations and our fundraisers
have made it possible to provide financial
assistance to our Pelham residents for household
expenses and financially support a menís and womenís
shelter who cover residents of Pelham. In addition,
we awarded one scholarship amounting to $2500 to a
high school senior who had a financial need and had
been accepted at a college and over the past
thirteen years, we have awarded 16 scholarships
amounting to $38,000. The Pelham Good Neighbor Fund
Committee is made up of fourteen volunteers who are
dedicated and committed to helping our less
fortunate residents in Pelham and your donations
have allowed us to reach out to touch someone to let
them know that we care. The committee would like to
thank you for your support and we look forward to
being of service to the community in the year 2013.
