Neighbor to Neighbor Helps

At Neighbor to Neighbor, we've had a whirlwind year. Our brand new Thrift Store enjoyed a successful opening at the beginning of November, thanks to our dedicated volunteers and wonderful patrons. Sunday, November 22nd, was poised to be our grand dedication service. Restrictions on indoor gatherings had just been issued, so sadly the event was not as grand as initially anticipated.

With over 10,000 square feet of retail space that allows for socially distanced shopping, Neighbor to Neighbor's Thrift Store boasts a beautiful selection of holiday and house decor, well-stocked shelves full of household items, small appliances to make your life easier, gently used furniture and footwear, clean clothing for the whole family, books, games, and so much more.

If you haven't been to Neighbor to Neighbor recently, you're missing out on one of the best shopping experiences in Berrien Springs. Our friendly volunteers are happy to help you find what you’re looking for.

Over the years our Pioneer family has supported us through their finances, volunteers and of course their prayers. However, one thing is missing in all of our improvements and new developments: you! From prayer partners to organizers, from greeters to greens keepers, Neighbor to Neighbor needs volunteers like you with talents like yours.

We always need volunteers with specialized skills who are willing to serve. If you have a talent for janitorial services, landscape maintenance, plumbing, or electrical work, you could be an answer to our prayers!

From Sunday through Thursday, volunteers help make Neighbor to Neighbor's various ministries possible. Our current volunteers invite you to join them in using your time and talents to give back to our community. To volunteer or become part of the Neighbor to Neighbor family of "love in motion," just call (269) 471-7411, or send an email to info@n2nhelps.com. We look forward to serving with you!
