Neighbor to Neighbor’s executive director Margaret Tjimos Goldberg plans to step down.

“Margaret gracefully navigated operations through the pandemic and the transition to our new home,” wrote Kristen Messelian Shapiro and John A. Shulman, co-presidents of the board of directors. “Please join us in thanking her for keeping our operation strong and our mission successful. We wish her well in her next chapter.”

Ms Tjimos Goldberg joined Neighbor to Neighbor back in 2019, just before the pandemic. Mary Beth Minton had been serving as interim executive director since July, following the departure of Nancy Coughlin.

Ms Tjimos Goldberg led the organization through the disruptions of Covid-19, the search for temporary locations including Arch Street Teen Center during construction of a new food pantry building that opened last summer.
