Unsung Hero Mike Amos wants to ‘make the world right’ with Good Neighbors

If you’re one of the hundreds of families who have picked up food at the Cuyahoga Falls Good Neighbors this year, then you can thank Mike Amos.

Amos has been a volunteer for the unit since he retired in 2014 after a 45-year career with Goodyear. He noted that about 90% of the volunteers are retired. “Before, I just worked 60 hours a week and didn’t really give back to society. I feel that I should give something back.” Good Neighbors is a great place for me to give back and help folks in our community!

I order all the food for our unit and pick it up on Monday & Thursdays and bring it back for our distribution. Each trip is over 5,000 pounds!
