Great Things Happen in the Service of Others

The Good Neighbor Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that plans, coordinates, and enacts community-based service initiatives. We actively serve in the communities where we are located and provide opportunities for community members to step forward to serve while thoughtfully promoting these neighborhood expressions of care.

DONATE TODAY

Your financial contribution or equipment donation enables Good Neighbors to serve in many ways. From mowing to leaf pick-up, to snow removal and much more – We help those who can’t help themselves.

MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS

 There are problems in our own community that our volunteers are being a solution to. Click right here to meet some of our awesome helpers, who make the Good Neighbor Project a reality.

REQUEST ASSISTANCE

Do you need help? Does your neighbor need help? Who do you know that could use a hand? Do you know someone who is sick, elderly, injured, disabled, single parent, grieving or just needs a hand?

ABOUT US

We mow lawns, we pick up leaves, and we move snow

The Good Neighbor Project serves and models service to others. Its Headquarters is based in Tuscarawas County, OH.

The project acknowledges that communities are diverse spaces with residents that have many different needs. The project seeks to meet specific needs in simple and sincere ways.

To meet these needs, the officers of the Good Neighbor Project identify community needs, plan and enact solutions by securing funding, material, equipment and volunteers, to launch and follow through with community based efforts.

HOW WE’VE HELPED

The number of lawns mown since 2017

OUR OBJECTIVES

At least one objective must met in any action taken by The Good Neighbor Project.

Serve others in tangible ways

Need a yard mowed? Have leaves that need picked up? Have snow that needs moved? We’ll show up for those in need. We’re active in our communities because we live there too.

Bring community members together in the service of others

Anyone can be a Good Neighbor. When we step outside our homes everyday there are problems that we have the solutions to. We bring people together to address these problems together.

Gain resources, material and funding to carry out the mission

Everyone has something to offer in the service of others. Some people can put in the time and labor and others may have equipment, materials or funds they can put towards the mission. What can you offer?

Thoughtfully promote acts of service

We put our best foot forward. We don’t promote out of pride for ourselves but to offer our communities proof of everyday people doing good. We aren’t superheroes, we’re just motivated folks that want everyone to know that they have something they can offer the world around them.

Every so often we develop such beautiful relationships with the folks we serve.

Michael Newton and I have shown up for one resident in particular the past few summers. This elderly resident is also a full time care giver. So when we show up to mow it's always nice to just talk and see how things are going.

Michael has really developed a neighborly relationship here. He mows for her more consistently than others and here again he found something else we could lend a hand with.

Now, we mow grass, rake leaves and move snow primarily. But when our volunteers come across something that they have time for other than that we coordinate to help the helpers!

So when the resident said she needed her trailer painted, Michael new he could make the time and sent out a good neighbor request for help.
(Black smudges put on picture to black out address)

And so we showed up. Michael Newton, Isaac Knight and myself showed up and got a job done for someone we may not live next to but someone who is our neighbor nonetheless.

We can't take on every big task but we can take on some. The gratitude of this resident and strengthened bond in this community is all the payment we need.

Thanks, Michael for being one of our volunteers, thanks Isaac for showing up in your free time. And thank you to each and every one of you out there reading and supporting these great things that happen in the service of others.

I finally got a moment to peek my head up from serving to let everyone know what The Good Neighbor Project is up to.

Today we feature Good Neighbor Volunteer Jim Mulheman and supporter Midvale Mike! I've been mowing here and there but it's so important that we show how many others in our community are reaching out as well. We will always shine the light on the doers around here.

Get ready, Michael Newton, Isaac Knight and Joe Harper. We've seen you out an about reaching out too!

Jim has consistently showed up for folks in Uhrichsville and New Philadelphia. He takes time time to get to know the residents he serves and you should see the look on his face when he talks about the connections that he's made.

Jim had the privilege of serving a Marine widow and single mother. (You're much more than that if you're reading - we use these qualifiers to keep privacy of residents). Jim saw that she had a riding mower but it was just in need of some TLC to get it up and running.

So not only did Jim mow her grass and hang out a while to chat but he also took it upon himself to buy a new battery for her mower and get it up and running for her. This is what it's all about folks. We show up to serve expecting nothing but the opportunity to serve, we get to know people and we solve other simple problems as we can.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to Midvale Mike Austing! He and Ridgway's Automotive conspired to help out the project in a big way.

Mike was selling his car and posted a sign at Ridgways. The kicker to the sale was that he would donate 10% of the sale price to The Good Neighbor Project. And the car sold in a flash. A local resident got a really good deal on a good car and some funds went right back into what we do here.

Thanks for your generosity, Mike! And thanks to the folks at Ridgway's that are always up to help the project help others!

Why do volunteers like Jim do this? Why does a supporter like Midvale Mike continue to stay on board? Why do local businesses like Ridgway's continue to give The Project a forum to reach out? Because we all care. We know that everyone needs a hand every now and then and when we see the opportunity to give a hand up to so someone we see great things happening. And it's all in the service of others.

I can't wait to share many more adventures we have loaded up to share as we create even more! Stay tuned.

The movement to give back with no questions asked for those in need rolls on. Having a rough time? Come get free pizza tomorrow courtesy of New Philadelphia Little Caesars!

TOMORROW- Tuesday, October 8, 2019

Location: Salvation Army

New Philadelphia, OH 44663

TIME: 12:00 TO 1:00PM

I have some posts of Good Neighbor work to catch up on. Michael Newton and Jim Mulheman have been crushing it and I've been working too! But just take a look at the great things going on here with the LOVE KITCHEN!

LITTLE CAESARS® LOVE KITCHEN® SERVES FREE PIZZA
TO LESS FORTUNATE IN NEW PHILADELPHIA

DETROIT – The Little Caesars Love Kitchen will roll into the Salvation Army to provide fresh Little Caesars pizza meals for approximately 175 people in need on Tuesday, October 8, 2019.

“The Love Kitchen was created to provide quality meals for people who need them,” said Little Caesars franchisees Paul and Andrea Tyson. “As a member of the area business community, it’s important for us to support people when they need it and help make the community stronger. We’re excited to support this program with food and staff to provide a quality meal for people who otherwise may not get one.”

The Little Caesars Love Kitchen has fed more than three million people in all 50 states and four Canadian provinces. It has also responded to disasters such as tornadoes and hurricanes, as well as the site of the World Trade Center attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and the 1995 Federal Building bombing in Oklahoma City. Established by Little Caesars in 1985, the Love Kitchen exemplifies Little Caesars strong tradition of giving back to America’s communities.

“We know that it’s important to reach out to the communities where we do business and help make a difference,” said David Scrivano, president and CEO of Little Caesars. “As a family company, we are proud to work together with our local franchisees and company-owned stores to coordinate the vehicle, staff and food and to be there for the people in New Philadelphia who need assistance.”

Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush awarded The President's Volunteer Action Award Citation to Little Caesars for its volunteers' contributions to the Love Kitchen. Little Caesars also received a Presidential Citation for Private Sector Initiatives for the Love Kitchen program under the Reagan administration. It has received a certificate of appreciation from the State of Michigan and was recognized by the Detroit City Council for its efforts in the Gulf Coast region.

Local Little Caesars franchise owners and company regional offices donate all food and labor costs for the Love Kitchen servings. An estimated 50,000 Little Caesars franchise owners and employees have volunteered their time over the years to support the program in their local communities.

ABOUT LITTLE CAESARS® PIZZA

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, Little Caesars was founded in 1959 as a single, family-owned restaurant. Today, Little Caesars is the largest carryout-only pizza chain in the United States and the third largest pizza chain in the world, with stores in each of the 50 states and 24 countries and territories around the world.

Known for its HOT-N-READY® pizza and famed Crazy Bread®, Little Caesars has been named “Best Value in America” for the past twelve years (based on nationwide survey of national quick service restaurant customers conducted by Sandelman & Associates - 2007-2018 entitled “Highest Rated Chain – Value for the Money”).* Little Caesars products are made with quality ingredients, like fresh, never frozen, mozzarella and Muenster cheese and sauce made from fresh-packed, vine-ripened California crushed tomatoes.

An exceptionally high growth company with 60 years of experience in the $145 billion worldwide pizza industry, Little Caesars is continually looking for franchisee candidates to join our team in markets around the world. In addition to providing the opportunity for entrepreneurial independence in a franchise system, Little Caesars offers strong brand awareness with one of the most recognized and appealing characters in the country, Little Caesar.
