Offer to help

Neighbors are here to help each other out! If your neighbor is going out of town you can offer to water their plants, take in their mail, or watch their pets. Bonus is, they’ll likely do the same for you in return!

Throw a party

A get together at your house, a backyard BBQ, or a block party…just get together! This is a fun way to build relationships with the people in your community.

Pick up after yourself

Keeping your space clean makes the whole neighborhood look better. If you have a pet, make sure you pick up after them when they do their business. Keep your yard groomed to show that you care. If you live in an apartment, do the do diligence of wiping off the gym equipment and pick up after yourself at the pool or lounge areas.
