This summer, we partnered with Meals on Wheels to deliver food to those in need. Meals on Wheels, based in Virginia, is the oldest and largest national organization dedicated to nutrition for seniors and the homebound.
On one rainy day, we followed Byron Baxter, Day Support Program Manager, and the crew from Day Support as they loaded up the van with food and set out to serve the community.
The people who received the meals were happy to see our staff and individuals and they often invited us in for conversation.
“Even though the weather was bad,” Baxter said, “our individuals still were able to put a smile on their faces.”
Thank you to our staff, individuals, and Meals on Wheels for helping eliminate hunger in our community and demonstrate what it means to be a good neighbor. We look forward to working with Meals on Wheels again next summer.

RICHMOND, VA - Good Neighbor is happy to be a sponsor of The Big Pig Project benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), a home away from home for families with children in the hospital.
Organizations in the community have partnered with RMHC by hand-painting concrete garden pigs that will be auctioned off on April 22nd. The money raised will go to support Richmond's Ronald McDonald House.
The Good Neighbor garden pig ("Mr. Pig") was hand-painted by the individuals at Good Neighbor Day Support, a place for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to enjoy art, exercise, technology, and other enriching activities.

A big thank you to all the individuals and staff at Good Neighbor Day Support for their wonderful contribution to The Big Pig Project.
