Neighbors Helping Neighbors

In our West Menlo Park neighborhood, University Park, there are many neighbors volunteering to help others that may need assistance in grocery shopping, medicines, pet care, or similar to those that may need that help. Covid taught us all that we need to stick together and help each other. Whether it’s a household with seniors, a young family with children, or people dealing health issues, our community can be there to help support.

The main thing that distinguishes a good neighborhood from a great neighborhood is knowing our neighbors. To apply Willie Mays’s famous saying, when you see people walking in the neighborhood — just “say hey”.
