To the Grand People of Grand Island - December 2016

    The Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island was happy to have brightened somewhat the Holiday Season for 57 families on the Island. However, we did NOT do it ourselves! So many from Grand Island, others near or far, helped with financial, food, and gift contributions. Thus the Foundation provided food baskets, turkeys, hams, gifts for children involved, and other help for those families. So many helped: food by students from all schools, then from DECA and Interact sorting that food for us. Many local organizations: the K of C with use of their Hall for distribution, River Oaks Golf Club (Eldens), others, made donations to our 'Share Your Happiness' fund drive or held events that raised money or collected additional food.
    To acknowledge in some small way the help we have received, the Neighbors Foundation has placed a listing of all our donors and workers in the Neighbors Foundation segment of the organization groups on Isle de Grande. The Foundation, with the donations and work of so many in those lists, was able to help many of your Island neighbors in temporary financial distress. Thanks to all the donors and helpers listed in that summary - you made the 2016 Holiday Season a bit happier for your Island neighbors. See list.
Henry G Kammerer
President, Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island




Pancake Breakfast to Benefit Neighbors Foundation - November 2016

   The River Oaks Golf Club and Elden's has generously donated the entire cost of a pancake breakfast event on Sunday, December 11th from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., to support the Neighbors Foundation. Your donation of $5 (or more) gives each: pancakes, sausage, orange juice and coffee, with all proceeds going to help the Neighbors Foundation provide Holiday Baskets of food, turkey and gift cards for any children involved, to approximately 60 Island families that are in temporary need this Holiday season. Please join us in the beautiful River Oaks Club House for a delicious, easy, Sunday breakfast during this hectic season, while you benefit the work the Neighbors Foundation does to make Grand Island a grand place for all its families.
Henry Kammerer
President,
Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island




Share Your Happiness Campaign - October 2016

    It is that time of the year when 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 gift baskets and gift card donations to families in temporary need, all made possible from donations from individuals, groups and organizations. Could you 'Share Your Happiness' by making a donation to the Foundation at P. O. Box 155 (or thru Paypal at www.gineighbors.org)? Financial contributions will help 'fill out' the food contributions that the Grand Island schools are collecting for us. The Neighbors Foundation will distribute gift cards to our families of infants – 13 year old children, so those parents may use gift cards to purchase gifts for them. As such, we would appreciate and graciously accept (for our Holiday Distribution) gift cards for either TARGET or TOPS.
    We hope generous supporters will consider donating gift cards, or providing financial donations that can be used to provide the cards we will distribute to our families in need. We will continue to provide toiletries gifts for teens, so gifts of toiletries will be useful to fill boxes for those teens. Thank you for your consideration of participating in our fund raising and gift card campaign. Last year we provided food baskets, toiletries and gift cards for over 60 families with close to 150 children. Your donation to the Neighbors Foundation helps to make a difference in the lives of these families and their children during this holiday season.




Middle School Donates to Neighbors Foundation - December 2015

President Henry Kammerer with VCMS students.

    On December 23, 2015, students at Veronica Connor Middle school presented the Neighbor's Foundation of Grand Island with $650.00 in donations. These donations were raised through the annual "Give Change to Make a Change" fundraiser. Top classes, in the photo include Mrs. Slaght's mod 2 and mod 11 Honor's Math classes, and Ms. Poole's mod 1 6th grade class. For their efforts, they were rewarded a "Donut Party".




To the Grand People of Grand Island - December 2015

    The Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island is proud to have had your help in brightening somewhat the Holiday Season for 62 families on the Island. We must admit that we join thoughtful folks, sad there are those families (and unfortunately, probably a number more) in distress in our area - we so want to believe that a rising economy helps all. Be proud that your financial, food, and gift contributions helped the Foundation provide food baskets, turkeys and/or hams, gifts for children involved, and other help for those families. Seedonators list.
    So many helped: food by students from all schools, then from DECA and Student Council sorting that food for us. Many local organizations, particularly River Oaks Golf Club (Ellden's), made donations or held events that raised money or collected additional food.
    The Officers and Directors of the Foundation keep our work low-key and certainly do not 'advertise' our help to distressed families. We show the names of our hard-working Officers and Directors after listing of all our donors in the Neighbors Foundation segment of the organization groups on Isle de Grande. Those people, plus other Advisors, help convert your generous donations into useful help for your Island neighbors in temporary financial distress. Thanks to all the donors and helpers listed in that summary who made the 2015 Holiday Season a bit happier for your Island neighbors.
Henry G Kammerer
President, Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island

Financial contributions will help ‘fill out’ the food contributions that the G I schools are collecting for us. The Neighbors Foundation will distribute gift cards to our families with 7 – 13 year olds, so those parents may use gift cards to purchase gifts for their children. As such, we would appreciate and graciously accept (for our Holiday Distribution) gift cards for the following stores:
1. Target
2. Tops
3. Walgreens
4. Rite Aid
   With the switch to gift cards for many children, we will need only a modest amount of toys and gifts to distribute to the very young. We hope generous supporters will consider donating gift cards, or providing financial donations that can be used to provide the cards we will distribute to our families in need. We have found it quite successful to provide toiletries gifts for teens – yes, we know they wash their hair every day! That portion of our Holiday Distribution remains unchanged, so gifts of toiletries will be useful to fill boxes for those teens.

Thanks to Share Your Happiness Campaign - January 2015

    The Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island would like to thank the hundreds of individuals and organizations who contributed to make our 2014 Holiday Distribution so successful. Over 53 of your neighbors were helped with food baskets and, where appropriate, gift cards or toys, for their children. The Foundation is a small, all-volunteer organization; we don't do this 'ourselves', we depend on the community to recognize the need around all of us, and to respond so generously. Even in beautiful, suburban Grand Island, there are needs, and you have helped. Thanks to all of you!

Pancake Breakfast Benefits Neighbors Foundation - December 2014

    On Sunday, Dec. 21, the River Oaks Clubhouse (Elden's Restaurant) is offering a Pancake Breakfast from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. to support the Neighbors Foundation. A $5 donation to the Foundation gives you excellent pancakes. The staff and management of River Oaks are donating all services and supplies to make this a great fund-raiser for the Neighbors Foundation, as the Foundation prepares Holiday Baskets for over 50 families of Grand Island who are having temporary financial difficulties this year. We on the all-volunteer Neighbors Foundation staff are particularly happy to thank Tom and Diane Brady of River Oaks management for their major support of the Foundation at this Holiday Season. We welcome all Grand Islanders to enjoy this Pancake Breakfast on Dec. 21 from 10 AM to 1 PM, increasing the support of the Foundation at the same time.

Busy Year for Neighbors Foundation - December 2013

   The Neighbors Foundation had their busiest year yet as they helped 68 families have a very nice holiday. For over 35 years the Neighbors Foundation have been helping those in need, especially during the holidays. The Grand Island Schools collected non-perishable items and gift cards, gifts and money was collected from the community. Each family will receive a turkey and gifts and gift cards for everyone in the family, along with canned goods. In the future, the Foundation is asking that all donated items be in the form of gift cards or cash donations, not actual gifts as in the past. The gift cards work out very well for all ages. Items may be donated at any time during the year to P. O. Box 155, Grand Island, New York 14072.

They are accepting $5, $10, $20 and $25 cards from suggested merchants: Top's Markets, Dollar Tree, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, Macy's and Kmart.

Click photo for larger view

    The Neighbors Foundation is helping out 65 families this year with food and Christmas gifts. Grand Island High School students from the DECA Club, Casey's Corner and Student Council gathered on Tuesday, December 18th to distribute the non-perishables. Families will pick up their gifts and food donations that afternoon/evening. Included in the food and gift baskets were $5000 in Top's Gift Cards, $1000 in gift certificates from John's Pizza (thank you Mark Raepple) and 1000 packages of Bremner cookies (thank you Rick Karnath). Student advisors on hand to help with the distribution include Cheryl Chamberlain/High School DECA, Christine Podlucky & Bob Simpson/Student Council and Mary Jane Fonte/Middle School Deca.




Neighbors Helping Neighbors - Neighbors Foundation - Nov. 2012

   Neighbors helping Neighbors, this time from a fire, other times from economic distress. The Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island, Inc, is proud to step forward and join the High School, Town of Grand Island, WGRZ-TV and numerous individuals plus businesses who are helping an Island family burned out of their apartment on Novovember 5, 2012. Linda Ray and her two sons have been left homeless and with ‘nothing but the clothes of their backs’ (literally) by the fire. With help spearheaded by Mary Friona of WGRZ, Principal Sandy Anzalone and Grand Island Town Supervisor Mary Cooke, contributions to the Neighbors Foundation, plus Foundation funds, will assist them in re-establishing their lives. We, as their neighbors, cannot bring back the pets they lost, but we can make their lives a little better by showing that we all care. The Foundation has a long-standing tradition of helping families in need on Grand Island. The Foundation also continues with its program of helping needy Island families in the 2012 Holiday Season with food and gift baskets. We ask the Grand Island community for extra support in our Holiday ‘Share Your Happiness’ fund drive through donations to P. O. Box 155, Grand Island NY 14072 or through the ‘Donate Now’ button on our Web Site www.gineighbors.org. The Neighbors Foundation is an all-volunteer charity with IRS 501c3 status helping Grand Island families (only) through their times of temporary need.

   Grand Island High School students from the Deca Club, Casey's Corner and Student Council came together on Tuesday, December 20th to sort and distribute all of the food collected during the annual "Share Your Happiness" campaign. The food donations were double the collection last year and packed the Knights of Columbus where the distribution took place. Sixty families will be stopping in to pick up their goodies, up from 45 families in 2010. In addition donations were made from the GIHS girls' soccer team, Casey's Corner and from the Student Council Tree Auction. Thanks go to high school students and advisors Robert Simpson, Christina Podlucky and Cheryl Chamberlain for all their efforts.
    Casey’s Corner and DECA helped those in need during this holiday season by holding two different fundraising events at Grand Island High School. The yearly tradition of “Something Sweet” enables students to send a stocking full of candy to their sweetheart’s homeroom for a small donation. The proceeds allowed the store to present a check for $150 to The Grand Island Neighbors Foundation. In addition, an “Ugly Sweater” contest was also held and students entered by donating $1 to the Community Mission. Mrs. Chamberlain and her students collected over $60 to purchase toys and mittens and delivered them just before the holiday. DECA and Casey’s Corner students wish everyone a wonderful holiday season.





Grand Islanders: Be proud of help for your neighbors! - Dec. 2011

   Grand Islanders can be proud of all that they did this Holiday Season to help the Neighbors Foundation help 60 families having difficult times with food, toy and gift baskets. Our Grand Island school children in the public schools and in St. Stephen school came through with a tremendous outpouring of food (OK, we know you parents really provided the cans and boxes). DECA, Student Council and Interact students from Grand Island High School sorted that food into 60 overflowing packages. Service and community clubs, individuals, organizations and businesses provided the Neighbors Foundation with funds to add turkeys, hams, gift cards and other treats to the baskets. With the economy around us barely improving, the need was greater than it has been for several years; we know all of you are ‘stressed’, but you recognized the need of your neighbors. We thank everyone who helped in any way. Those who were helped cannot speak for themselves, we send their thanks to you. Once again, Grand Island is a grand place; may we all have an improved year in 2012.
Henry G. Kammerer
President, Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island

Share Your Happiness 2011

   The Neighbors Foundation is continuing the tradition of helping families in need at this 2011 Holiday Season with food and gift baskets, but earnestly asks the Grand Island community for extra support in our Holiday ‘Share Your Happiness’ fund drive through donations to P. O. Box 155, Grand Island, NY 14072. In addition, as the Grand Island Schools and other groups have non-perishable food drives, increased generosity to those drives would greatly help those in need. The Neighbors Foundation is an all-volunteer charity with IRS 501c3 status helping Grand Island families (only) through their times of temporary, emergency need with food baskets and partial payments toward rent and utility bill payments where appropriate. Neighbors Foundation Wish List.


Pajama Bottoms Needed - November 2011

The collection box is in the front hall of the "new" church, located at 2100 Whitehaven Road. The collection will take place during the month of November.
