Offer to go grocery shopping or run other errands for those remaining at home, or simply offer to check-in with a regular phone call. Get to know your neighbors and how you can help them before an emergency strikes Seattle! Use our Hello Neighbor cards to offer help to vulnerable neighbors. A little bit goes a long way!
