Since June 6, 1968, the Cuyahoga Falls Good Neighbors has been assisting families and individuals in need with groceries, clothing, household items, Christmas gifts, and school supplies.
They started out in a chicken coop on the former Cuyahoga Falls Baptist Church property and now thanks to many generous supporters, they own their own building!
Kim Gaug and Linda Pearson manage the Cuyahoga Falls Unit. Kim has been volunteering since 1990 and Linda since 1969. Kim served as the past Good Neighbors Council President and Vice President. Her mother Louise Coyle helped open the Cuyahoga Falls Good Neighbors Unit in 1968. Louise volunteered for more than 40 years and served as the past Good Neighbors Council President.
