I’ve had the pleasure of taking a hot meal or baked item to a new neighbor in their first few hectic days of moving in. Showing up with a quiche or basket of cookies always gets a smile!
Little things like this can only make a positive and welcoming impression to someone new in the neighborhood. There are other life events that may occur within your neighborhood which are a perfect opportunity to show you care. Takingea meal if a neighbor is hospitalized, sick or there is a new baby in the house, or even a death, shows you care. To cover a longer time period, volunteers can be recruited to pitch in and help. Rather than coordinate meal drop-offs via telephone, email, or facebook, check it out, there’s a whole website dedicated to meal planning! http://www.takethemameal.com/
