Caring Neighbors Make the Difference!

Caring Neighbors Make the Difference!

As I watch the news this week I can’t help but be thankful I live in a caring and thoughtful community.  In Stillwaters it is common for neighbors to keep an eye out for each other or run an errand for a sick friend. Office staff provide support and problem solving for the various challenges that come along and even our service providers, mail people and our Chronicle newspaper delivery person all keep an eye out for signs of need.  We are a community full of caring and giving residents.

The importance of community and caring neighbors is a nationwide story this week in the coverage of the Oso Landslide disaster.  As I watch the news and read the stories of neighbors helping neighbors, and communities helping other communities, I remember the years not too far in the past when Lewis County was the center of that attention.

Our hearts break for the families who are impacted by this loss in Oso and to a degree I think we have experienced the outpouring of care and support when our community suffered significant damage in the 2007 and 2009 floods.  In the days after these floods people from near and far provided support.  At times like this it is heartwarming to know that friends, neighbors and even strangers come to our aid.   

Giving to the United Way of Snohomish County at is the most direct way to financially help with this disaster.  According to the Snohomish County websites they are overwhelmed by food and clothing donations and now are just in need of funds to help in the recovery effort.  You can also donate to the local United Way (Be sure to designate it for the Oso Mudslide Disaster) and they will ensure it goes directly to this purpose.

Thank you for being the caring neighbors that you are!
