Neighbors Foundation: Share Your Happiness campaign begins

Fri, Nov 17th 2017 07:00 pm
The Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island is counting on Islanders to support its annual Share Your Happiness campaign for those temporarily in need.
Last year, the Neighbors Foundation provided food baskets, toiletries and gift cards for over 60 families with close to 150 children.
"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," said Neighbors Foundation President Henry Kammerer of the annual Share Your Happiness campaign. "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."
Kammerer also said the Neighbors Foundation has helped in Islandwide projects such as creating a Grand Island room of care at the new Oishei Children's Hospital.
Donors can send contributions to the foundation at P. O. Box 155 (or through PayPal at www.gineighbors.org). Financial contributions will help fill out the food contributions that the Grand Island schools are collecting. The Neighbors Foundation will distribute gift cards to families with children, so those parents may purchase gifts. The Neighbors Foundation is accepting gift cards to either Target or Tops Markets.
"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," Kammerer said
"Thank you for your consideration of participating in our fund raising and gift card campaign," he added. "Your donation to the Neighbors Foundation helps to make a difference in the lives of these families and their children during this holiday season.
