Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Our community is facing unprecedented challenges. Serve Saint Paul: Neighbors Helping Neighbors is building a community of service in Saint Paul by connecting neighbors who could use a helping hand through this situation. In partnership with Cities of Service and AARP, this initiative engages volunteers to safely support community members who are experiencing barriers to meeting some basic needs due to age, mobility, income, or other factors. Working together as a community, our city will emerge stronger and more connected. Get started at
