Good Neighbor Program

Good Neighbor Program

Do you have a neighbor in need? 

We can help you help them! With your help, we can expand our services to provide assistance to more citizens in need throughout the Temple area. 

Through the Good Neighbor Program, the City of Temple seeks volunteers who are willing and able to help Temple’s elderly and disabled with regular lawn care needs and other minor home improvement projects. Volunteers are invited to use the lawn care equipment that is available through the Transform Temple Tool Library at no charge. Lawn work is completed on a monthly basis, or as needed. Minor home repair projects might include painting or clearing of brush/debris. 

Volunteers will receive a Good Neighbor t-shirt, recognition on the Transform Temple website, and a lot of gratitude from a very thankful citizen!
