I live on a street where the neighbors range from newborn twins to eighty-year-olds that have lived on the street for 40+ years. I decided to contact everyone with a little note placed on their mailbox. A couple of folks are new to the street and we hadn’t even met before the “stay at home” request. I included a coloring book and markers for the 3-year-old across the street and received a colorful thank you in return! I also received 3 phone calls in response from older folks that I was happy to hear are being taken care of by their families, plus a couple of shoutouts across our driveways.
The notes also went with the promise that we will host a Block Party later this summer and I’m really looking forward to that!
