There is no greater act of service than to love and take care of your neighbors. And that's not just our opinion. We see this beautifully displayed in Matthew 12:30-31 when Jesus says, "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” The Love Your Neighbor Project is just that! A simple, practical, but very meaningful way to make sure your neighbors feel loved, seen and appreciated.
Reach out to your neighbors via postcard, email or phone
If you already have their contact information, that's amazing! If not, we have created free postcards that can be used to reach out to them if need be! You can call or email the office to have yours sent today.
When you see people outside...make it a point to talk to them
One-minute conversations are a big deal when it comes to bulding relationships in our neighborhood. It's easy to only look at our own lives and forget that those around us may also be struggling. So see them, say something!
Ask your neighbors how they are doing and how you can help!
• How are you and your family doing in light of all the change?
•How has this impacted your job and your company?
•Is there anything that you need or that I could help with?
•Are you able to get out to get groceries or essential items?
Real relationships are two-way streets–don't hesitate to share honestly about how you are feeling and doing. See below for more practical and fun ways to connect!
HOW TO LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR...
COVID-19 ESSENTIAL GUIDELINES ( CDC.GOV )
It is crucial to follow the CDC instructions at all times when interacting with neighbors. Following these guidelines is the best thing we can do to protect ourselves and the most vulnerable among us.
• Wash your hands with sops often and avoid touching your face.
• Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from other.
• Avoid having people outside your immediate family into your home.
• Limit touches to hard surfaces that others may touched and wipe down surfaces when in doubt.
• If you are not feeling healthy, self-quarantine and avoid contact with others.
