Need a Neighbor Website Matches Volunteers with Those Who Need Assistance in the Evansville Area
If there's one positive that has come out of the coronavirus pandemic, it's how those of us who are capable to do so are so willing to help those who aren't able to help themselves. However, wanting to help and finding someone in the Evansville area who needs it can be a bit of task. If only there were some type of resource where you could let someone know you want to help, and they could put you in touch with someone who has asked for it. Like a dating site, but without the dating part. Oh wait! There is such a thing.
Need a Neighbor.org is a collaboration between "For Evansville, Inc., Community One, Inc., Impact Upgrade, and local Christian churches in the Evansville, Indiana region" that gives someone who needs assistance in some fashion get that assistance from someone who wants to provide it. That help could be in the form of delivering groceries to someone spending all their time at home because they're in the high-risk category for contracting COVID-19, providing a meal of some type for that individual, or simply giving them a call from time to time to see how they are holding up.
