- www.myneighborinneed.org Celebrates Two-Year Anniversary
Posted: Sunday, March 23, 2014
“This is a day to celebrate! Today we celebrate kindness! Today we celebrate the generosity of strangers! And today, we once again demonstrate that it does not take a lot to do a lot,” Snuggs said. “What started out as the simple idea of anonymous giving has grown into a movement encompassing other social services needed by members of the community including www.mystudentinneed.org, the Pet Food Pantry and the Give What You Can Community Thrift Store.”
My Neighbor in Need, a non-profit organization, based in Great Falls Montana, has satellite projects in Teton County (operated in partnership with Neighbors Helping Neighbors) and Lewistown, Montana. In addition, My Neighbor in Need is available in Southern Wisconsin through a partnership with Saint Vincent De Paul. My Neighbor in Need provides citizens a way to ask for help from their community and a way for the community to give back.
In two years, My Neighbor in Need has received over 3,400 requests for help and has fulfilled over 2,300 needs with almost 2,100 fulfilled in Cascade County Montana alone. “Although the website has been instrumental in connecting those in need with those willing to help, without the community embracing the concept My Neighbor in Need would simply be a website. I want to thank our sponsors, community partners, volunteers and most of all the caring individuals and organizations who every day wake up and make the choice to help a neighbors in need. Their compassion and dedication is without measure,” Snuggs said.

- My Neighbor In Need hits fulfillment milestone

GREAT FALLS -- My Neighbor In Need hit a big milestone on Friday as it fulfilled its 3,000th request in the Great Falls community.
Dave Snuggs started the My Neighbor In Need program and website in March of 2012 so that people could give to others anonymously.
The site allows residents to post a plea for help, whether it be lawn care assistance, dental emergencies, or plumbing issues. Volunteers then verify the need is legitimate and community partners called "good deed-doers" help fulfill the request, either with money or by performing a needed service.
When the site first launched, Snuggs said he had hoped to reach 200 fulfillments in a year, but My Neighbor In Need has expanded to more than two dozen communities and even in Wisconsin.
On Friday, Snuggs presented Sherry Hoyer and her daughter Tanisha Lewis with a bed at the My Neighbor In Need office in downtown Great Falls.
Sherry recently got an apartment after living in a homeless shelter and in a camper on a friend's property.
She needed help filling her new apartment with furniture, so Sherry turned to My Neighbor In Need.
"We received two beds, a couch, a table and two chairs, microwave oven, blender, toaster, dishes, bedding wear, entertainment stand, TV," Hoyer said.
Sherry says that her and her daughter can now relax in their new home. She can also now focus on work and raising her daughter.
"I can't explain it with words. I am so happy and thankful," she said.
Normally, the people who participate in the program -- both on the request and the donation side -- are anonymous, but Sherry wanted to share her story: "I am very proud and thankful to everybody involved."
