Good Neighbor Awards
Each year once again, we honor some of the older adults and people with disabilities who have shared their talents, energy, and care to make a difference in their neighborhoods. This year, we will be especially looking for neighborhood leaders who exemplify Norma Satten, for whom our annual Community Service Award is named.
Like Norma, a role model for many, we will be looking for leaders embody Norma’s spirit of inclusion, cross-disciplinary leadership, and who help to nurture the leaders of tomorrow. Together, CLC can continue the inclusive, innovative, pioneering spirit of Norma in the areas of aging with dignity and human rights.”
Ways to Be A Good Neighbor
Walk & Wave to Your Neighbors
Head out on your own or organize your neighbors for a (safe, physically distanced) walk around your community and wave to people isolated at home. Get Creative: Make a sign (or two!) to bring with you on your walk.
Add Some More Fun to Neighborhood Walks
Whether you’re walking around your neighborhood or staying at home, make walks a little more fun for everyone! Decorate your sidewalk with chalk, add hearts or signs to your window for neighbors to find, or just wave hello.
Support Local Businesses
As we start venturing out, our local businesses are facing great uncertainty and economic losses. Help support the neighborhood stores, restaurants, and other businesses that keep your community vibrant.
Spread Some Cheer
It’s been a challenging year and not everyone is ready to venture out yet. Find or make a card. Add a quick note and send to someone you admire, to someone isolated at home, to someone who needs a little love.
Share a Talent
Are you a dancer? Baker? Musician? Crafter? Cook? Storyteller? Gardener? Did you take up something new over the past year? FInd a way to share your talent with those around you. Dance, sing, or play a song with your neighbors. Share something you’ve made – food, art, something knit or sewn.
Learn Something / Teach Something
Learn Something: Stay engaged.and active. Learn something new from a friend or join one of our virtual classes. Join us at one of our pop-up transportation or tech support desks. Teach Something: Help friends, grandchildren, and neighbors keep learning by teaching them something – a recipe, a song, how to use Zoom, so many possibilities!
Plant Seeds of Hope
Enjoy the benefits of gardening and bring a little new life to our indoor and outdoor spaces. Plant a packet of CLC’s wildflower Seeds of Hope or share a succulent or another cutting from your garden.
