May - Give to Lincoln Day

Give to Lincoln Day is a 24 hour online donation for Lincoln and Lancaster County non-profit organizations recogniozed by IRS as 501C3 public charities sponsored by Lincoln Community Foundation. Good Neighbor Community Center has participated in this event where individuals give a minimum of $10. Lincoln Community Foundation and its sponsors provide a match grant. Each participating organization then receives a proportional share of the fund based on the percentage they raise.

October - Samples of the World Fundraiser

Samples of the World is an event that was started in 2009 to celebrate 35 years of service to Lincoln and Lancaster County. Each year, the event features dinner and desserts prepared by immigrants and friends of the Good Neighbor Community Center. The event is hosted at College View Seventh-Day Adventist Church and all proceedings benefit the GOod Neighbor Community Center. In the past, guests have been able to purchase cook books, sponsored diapers, personal care items, bid on dinners, purchased our food truck and most recently contributed funds to help replace our floors.

November and December - Thanksgiving and Grandparents Christmas Room

The Good Neighbor Community Center offers Thanksgiving food baskets in November through our pantry. Individuals in need have to make appointments in the month of November. The Grandparents Christmas Room provides gifts to low-income grandparents. They receive donated toys and gift wraps or bags which they can give to their grandchildren for Christmas.
