Last week, our Safeway on Shoreline ran out of fresh herbs, which we love to enhance our meals with. Our next-door neighbor decided to share fresh herbs from their garden with the whole neighborhood and it made our day! Our meals have been so delicious this week thanks to them :) -- Amanda F.
We're looking for good stories about our good neighbors.
We want to continue to highlight all that our community is doing, together, to bring positivity and goodwill during the COVID-19 pandemic. What are the best ways you've seen Mountain View band together to show support for their neighbors? Share it with us! Email your photos and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
REMINDER: We want your art!
Did you do some coloring this week? Show some community togetherness spirit! After you download a copy, have your kiddos show off their artistic skills and send it to email@example.com, along with your name and neighborhood, so we can share with the community. Rumor has it we might even showcase some of them at the Center for Performing Arts marquee!
