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.

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

The number of volunteer man hours in 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.

What have we been doing lately?

A call came in for to mow a small lawn in Dover for a resident in need. The text went out to The Good Neighbor Team and Greg Geib answered the call to service the same day.

We all volunteer at our own leisure and do things at our own ability! We do what we can when we can. Thanks for being a great example of this, Greg!

There are some exciting things in the works, folks. The ways to serve are many. We're planning for big things while still consistently caring about the small things. Thanks to all the Good Neighbor Volunteers that give selflessly!

Thank you Greg for your helping hand. God Bless

So nice of you people

Many blessings!

Sick, elderly, injured, disabled, widow(er), single mother, veteran or just really need a hand mowing in Tuscarawas County? Call or text 740.229.9224 and we will arrange one of our background checked and insured volunteers to come and help! Volunteers like this one.

Good Neighbor Volunteer Michael Newton was at it again today. He said he "got caught up in the neighbor part of Good Neighbor". He spent about 6 hours at 3 different residences in Uhrichsville today.

One of the residents followed up with me just to let me know how grateful he was that Michael cared enough to stick around and talk.

The lawns weren't that big. Michael just spent that extra time visiting with folks and getting to know them. This is what it is all about. It's about the people not the grass and every Good Neighbor Volunteer knows that. 😀

He messaged me when he was headed home "Just finished with the third yard of the day. Now it's time to head home and do my own yard 🤣".

Remember how it use to be just one guy this community rallied around? Now it's a whole group and organization. We get to shine a light on good folks doing good things for the right reasons right here in our own communities.

Thanks, Michael, for embodying everything The Good Neighbor Project stands for. He's found where great things happen and so can you. They happen in the service of others.

What's been going on? Everything!

Better Banner Printing in New Philadelphia donated some Good Neighbor Project Supporter signs! Thanks, Dave Callender!

I had the chance to mow two lawns today. Both residences were Vietnam Veterans. I love to talk it up with these guys!

Matthew Warner jumped in. The picture next to him doesn't do justice to the massive lawn he push mower. What a Good Neighbor Warrior. It's wonderful to have him take time to show up and show out like this!

Jim Mulheman got in the action today! He showed up to a scheduled lawn and something great always happens. He had the opportunity to talk to that resident's neighbors and mowed for them two.

Many times we find needs when we are in the course of our day to day. Matthew and Jim decided to reach out to the needs they saw. Let's get behind these volunteers. We background check them. We insure them. We even do some scheduling here and there. But the service itself comes from their motivation to reach out to those in need.

Lastly, you'll see a Buddy Bench! That's right, we're not done. Provia made the bench and I helped some kids get their handprints on it. I'm so grateful we got to partner like this!

They were even nice enough to clear coat it for us. I then went to Tusco TV and presented a Buddy Bench to Cameron Krahel. They'll be getting into highschool football season and the buddy bench might make the rounds with them as a display to reinforce the need a buddy, BE A BUDDY message. We're going to find some creative ways to help the community.

There are some other great things brewing behind the scenes. Rest assured, folks. They will be great. They'll be great because it will be in the service of others. Until then, we've got to keep mowing.

Thanks for reading, everyone!

Always good new from the good neighbor project!

Guys, thank you so much! Even though Diane and I were out of town and couldn't meet with you, it was greatly appreciated after the fiasco of this past week and trying to buy 2 new mowers at a place that shall go unmentioned<>What a farce!

Little Matt you are awesome!!

We have two volunteers waiting to mow some lawns. Need a hand? Call or text 7406108741.

I'm out to do 2 lawns today and pick up a donated mower. But before that I would like to thank Professional Eye Care of Tusc. Co.: Dr Rebecca Gambs, OD.

Dr. Gambs invited me to speak to the New Philadelphia Lions Club yesterday. It was a lot of fun to share the projects and our mission with everyone.

After that, I went over to Schoenbrunn Community Moravian Church and talked with Pastor Ben Lippert. That congregation came together during their Vacation Bible School to raise over $300.00 for The Good Neighbor Project. I've been told that Ben and a few others may have gotten a pie in the face as a fundraising motivator. From the bottom of my heart, thank you! We have already used the funds to buy some equipment (more info soon).

Here we go. Have to keep mowing!

Happy to support a great ministry!

I Love what you are doing..

YAy!

Just for some proof 😉

SO MUCH GOOD IS HAPPENING! Sorry for the Caps. I get excited.

In the top left picture you will see Jason Baker. He was out for his second good neighbor mission yesterday where he completed lawns 41 and 42. One lawn took 2 hours! What dedication!

Jason is one of our background checked and insured volunteers. His employer, First Federal Community Bank, gives employees paid time off to do Community service. What a great thing!

This morning I was set up at Provia in Sugar Creek as they had a huge event. I had the privilege of being in the company of other great Community Organizations such as the Tuscarawas County Anti Drug Coalition, Personal Family Counseling Services, Red Cross and so many more.

This event was also a giveaway for clothes, school supplies and so much more. The Provia staff did an amazing job organizing and running this event. And guess what? THEY EVEN MADE THE GOOD NEIGHBOR PROJECT ANOTHER BUDDY BENCH!

They presented me with the bench and I got to help kids put their "helping hand prints" on the bench to decorate it. Dozens and dozens of kids came through and most if not all recognized the buddy bench. We all got to learn even more that if we see someone that needs a buddy that we should BE A BUDDY!

As we were packing up, I saw there were still plenty of backpacks left. I went and asked the staff if I could have some to donate. They were super excited to give the leftovers to a good cause and I was so happy to be there to ask and get them where they need to go.

So I packed my little Honda Civic full of backpacks (approximately 50 brand new backpacks) and drove to Uhrichsville to surprise Wendy Mann of the Twin City Kids Coalition. Wendy was so grateful for this gift from Provia and I was so happy to identify a resource and a need and provide a rapid response solution.

I know the Twin City Kids Coalition has big plans for to care for Uhrichsville and Dennison and it is my great pleasure to help some of the many helpers in our wonderful county.

It's not just one guy with a mower. It's a good neighbor volunteer mowing, it's a day teaching kids to be a buddy with a "helping hand print, and it's empowering the other doers in our great community with resources that we find along the way.

What a great day. And it was all in the service of others. Thanks, Jason. Thanks, First Federal Community Bank. Thanks, Provia. Thanks Twin City Kids Coalition. It's an honor to love, serve and lead right along with all of you!
