CITY OF FAIRHOPE LAUNCHES NEIGHBORHOOD BRIDGES
FAIRHOPE, Alabama – Fairhope’s Neighborhood Bridges initiative is off and running with a singular goal of offering residents and easy opportunity to fill unmet community needs.
Needs are posted by trusted advocates within the community and published on www.neighborhoodbridges.org/community/fairhope-al. Interested citizens can claim and fill those needs and drop off at a local drop-off location. The filled needs will then be delivered to the advocates for distribution.
“In a community as prosperous and giving as Fairhope, there’s no reason why anyone in our area should go without,” said Mayor Karin Wilson. “Stemming from a 2017 grant-funded community engagement study of the South Fairhope area, we realized that there could be an easy way to meet simple needs. As a lifelong resident of Fairhope, it is so important to me to help our residents, both those with needs and those who want to connect and fill those needs. With the incredible growth rate we’ve experienced in the past 10 years, we know that the needs have grown along with our population. I am thankful for the many organizations that exist in our community and am proud to help bring this platform to the table as a way to supplement the great work they are already doing.”
Residents can subscribe to the newsletter at the website to be notified of needs as they are posted.
