A Good Neighbour Is Easy to Find
Since the onset of COVID-19, community members from all over St. Albert have stepped up like never before to take care of each other through helpful gestures.
The act of helping seems to have taken on a heroic meaning. Individuals are taking it upon themselves to form deeper connections with their neighbours to make sure no one is left behind.
We’ve heard stories of people running errands and shopping for neighbours who are under quarantine or at risk, people bringing joy to others through a neighbourhood activity like window decorating or birthday drive-bys, friendly phone calls, weekly check-ins with neighbours and the list goes on.
Did your neighbour gift you with their help? Now’s your chance to show your gratitude! We’re asking St. Albert residents to recognize a neighbour who has helped others in times of need or has shown leadership through initiatives that help make neighbourhoods safe, connected and friendly.
Submit your request online and your good neighbour will be eligible to receive a letter from the Mayor and a keepsake “Good Neighbour Recognition” certificate. The nomination process takes only a couple of minutes and it’s an act of kindness that will surely put a smile on your neighbour’s face.
