We know some of our neighbors need extra help as they age in place.
We also know that Bowie has many able-bodied retirees, civic organization members, and young people who are looking for ways to give back to their community.
The Community Services Department facilitates a program to match these two groups. We call the program “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” This program is designed to bridge the gap between elderly (65+) and disabled residents and adults and organizations looking for ways to reach out and help someone in need. This is strictly a volunteer program. More information is included in the application forms.
Light Yard Work
Volunteers may assist with light yard work - raking leaves, trimming shrubbery, gardening, mowing the lawn, or shoveling snow.
Grocery and Pharmacy Pickup
Our other focus is on essential needs - grocery shopping and pharmacy pickup requests.
