Community Strong— Neighbors Pulling Through to Provide Help and Show Kindness.

Community Strong

We are living in unusual times. Schools are out, most stores closed, and many are working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic. But in association after association, we are seeing that imposed separation is bringing people closer together. Random acts of neighborly kindness are plentiful in both communities managed by Sentry and across the country.

Social media is full of uplifting stories of neighbors coming together. Some of our favorites include:

  • Exchanges of books, games and “grab and share” locations for where residents can drop off or obtain necessities they have been unable to obtain
  • Appreciating health care workers and first responders with window signs and organized drive-bys to applaud hospital workers
  • Impromptu events like dinner in the driveway, sing-alongs and dancing/exercising at a distance
  • Christmas lights to brighten the spirits of neighbors

Sentry-managed communities have many great examples too. Read how these residents responded to making the best of social distancing:

Making Sidewalk Art & “Hunting Bears”.  Sidewalks are filled with uplifting messages from people of all ages, and children can walk through the neighborhood and locate bears that are left in front windows. View full story here.
