There Goes the Neighborhood (For the Better!).

No need for pandemic pandemonium, when you have neighbors! Here are a few ways to connect with the people on your street so that you all feel a little better while practicing safe social distancing.

  1. To say this is a challenging time for everybody would be an understatement, but it’s particularly hard for your neighbors who are older, or for those who live alone. Now’s the time to reach out. Leave them notes or ask if they can talk through the door or window. The first thing to do is ask about how they’re doing, and offer your help. Since it may be hard for the elderly to get out at all, see if you can help by grocery shopping, picking up the mail, prescriptions from the pharmacy, or anything else they might need. If they have email or can text, ask them to trade recipes with you, or start a virtual online game with them. Most importantly, let them know they aren’t alone in this and you’re only a few houses away.
  2. Hearts for Healthcare Workers is a Facebook group featuring messages of encouragement for healthcare workers. They suggest putting hearts on your front door to let docs, nurses and everyone at the hospital know that you appreciate them. Get the kids involved and make them for your whole neighborhood!
  3. Make a sign for your front porch that says thank you to everybody out there working, from your mail carrier to the UPS, food, newspaper and takeout delivery workers, etc. Kids can help too. Thanking people has never been more important than right now.
  4. If you don’t already have one, start a neighborhood email group so everyone can communicate about important area issues, needs, etc. Slip a simple note in your neighbor’s box, asking them to send you their email and start it up. This will be helpful during this crisis, but also long after it ends. (Which can’t be soon enough!)
