Julie found a remedy for our throw-away culture. Shay takes things that people don’t want and gets them to people who need them. Trash, it turns out, inspired her to form Good Neighbors Group in 2006 out of her West Severna Park neighborhood. It has since grown into a network of more than 500 volunteers. They step in before people take items to the landfill that others could put to good use. It’s all part of a great mission to strengthen communities and help the environment.
