PELHAM GOOD NEIGHBOR FUND

People Helping People Since 1969

Welcome to the Pelham Good Neighbor Fund

The Pelham Good Neighbor Fund was established in 1969 by Pelham residents who wanted to provide food and financial assistance for their less fortunate neighbors.  We have helped over 2700 residents in the last forty years. Our slogan is People Helping People and that has certainly been our experience in good times as well as bad times in the town of Pelham.

Our fund is made possible by the generosity of our neighbors
