Super heroes are all around us (their capes are just invisible!)
In this section, we celebrate and highlight heroes in our community and thank them for the difference they are making in the world.
The citizens of the Bernal Heights neighborhood of San Francisco
Instead of letting stay-at-home requirements bring them down, neighbors found creative ways to reach out and care for one another – 6 feet apart.
Neighbors supported one another by:
Forming a local newspaper for kids
Organizing socially distanced block parties
Starting a free sidewalk food pantry
Distributing medical supplies
Creating games for kids in their gardens
Baking bread for one another
Thank you, neighbors.
Mr. Rogers would be proud!
In Lockdown, a Neighborhood Opens Up
Let us know your super heroes!
All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That's one of the things that connects us as neighbors – in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver.
– Mr. Rogers
