"There are not words enough to say how grateful I am for an organization like Neighbors in Action. I have wonderful neighbors, but it is a comfort to know I can depend on the volunteers from Neighbors in Action.   
 
Thank you to everyone who volunteers their time and energy to keep this organization viable... and to all in the community who support this endeavor."
