Spotlight on Outreach: Neighbor to Neighbor
Well known and highly regarded by the Christ Church Greenwich community and throughout the town, the nonprofit Neighbor to Neighbor organization provides nutritious food to over one thousand Greenwich area residents along with seasonally appropriate clothing. Established in 1975, in the basement of the Christ Church Greenwich’s Annex building, to distribute gently used clothing, in the 1980s Neighbor to Neighbor was asked by the Greenwich Department of Social Services to begin a food distribution program. In 2005 Christ Church Greenwich provided an additional space in the Parish House basement, which became the area’s first “client choice” food pantry. Read more >
