Neighbors Helping Neighbors
There are many neighbors volunteering to help others that may need assistance in grocery shopping, medicines, pet care, or similar tasks. Staying at home, keeping safe, and limiting exposure, creates a hardship form many. Please register if you may need help or assistance. Register if you can provide assistance.
Like communities around the world, our neighborhood is showing appreciation for medical, first responders, and other essential service workers.
In the same vein, neighbors are paying tribute and support by displaying blue tribute ribbons on their fences and trees (see inMenlo article).
Neighbors Supporting Community
We have a lot of local businesses that are also negatively impacted by the pandemic and we, as members of the community, can help. Support local businsses, including those eating establishments that offer takeout/pickup.
Featured: Shady Lane Gifts
Alice and her husband founded Shady Lane 45 years ago to showcase their own artisan creations and they now help promote a group of local artisans, all women, who help out in the store and showcase the wonderful creations at Shady Lane. Shady Lane sells mostly hand created gift items but also purchase designs from local and international artisans.
For many of us in the community, Shady Lane has been an important resource for decades. Newer residents have discovered its fine collection of unique gifts, beautiful artistic creations, and wonderful friendly service. An important member of our local business community.
We plan on featuring various local businesses in hopes of supporting them during this critical time. The first was Luttickens. Lutickens is open and serving takeout from both the Deli menu and After 5 menu. Call 650-854-0291. Lutickens supports pre-order and pickup and other delivery options via Waiter.com, DoorDash, and Gruphub delivery options.
