I can think of so many times my neighbors have helped me. Plowing me out. Helping with a sick child. Walking my dogs. Advising on parenting. Making me laugh. My neighbors have babysat my children, driven me to the hospital and fed my family. We are neighbors, and I feel so lucky to be the recipient of their care.
I love our community, and I worry we may lose this sense of neighbor helping neighbor. There are so many neighbors in our community who need help. Do you know someone who is in need? Do you have a need? Are you in a domestic violence situation? Do you require legal advice? Do you need transportation to medical appointments? Does your child need early intervention due to a physical or learning disability? Do you need help in getting food on the table? Do you need mental health care? Do you need financial assistance to send your child to preschool, daycare, after-school care, or camp?
