Neighbor to Neighbor Announces Interim Executive Director

Neighbor to Neighbor announced on Monday that Mary Beth Minton has been named Interim Executive Director of the non profit in wake of the departure last week of Nancy Coughlin who left to take on the role of CEO of Person to Person.

Ms. Minton, who previously was a long-time Greenwich resident, brings a strong nonprofit background, as well as an MBA in Finance from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

She most recently was finance director of a non-profit delivering meditation and emotional intelligence training in New York City.

Previously, Mary Beth co-founded and ran a children’s toy start-up for 10 years. Prior to that, she was executive director of the largest HIV/AIDS fundraising organization in Connecticut. Her experience in the non-profit world also includes many charity board and volunteer roles.

Ms. Minton’s appointment was announced by Neighbor to Neighbor’s  Board of Directors.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to support Neighbor during this time of transition, and work in collaboration with the board, staff, volunteers, funders and community partners as we continue to fulfill our mission to improve the lives of our neighbors by providing access to food, clothing and other life essentials,” Minton said in a release from the non profit.

Neighbor to Neighbor’s Board of Directors Search Committee has initiated a search that will take place over the summer for a new permanent Executive Director.

“We are excited that Mary Beth will serve in this capacity as we continue implementing our transition plan to find a permanent executive director,” said Kip Burgweger, Neighbor to
Neighbor’s President in the release.

Neighbor to Neighbor creates access to nutritious food, in-season clothing, and household items to over 5,000 area residents in need. The organization provides healthy food options at no cost on a weekly basis for over 2,000 Greenwich residents, half of whom are children. Learn more at
