COVID-19 Neighboring Toolkit

In their book, The Art of Neighboring, Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon notes that we have hundreds of “friends” through online social networking, but we often don’t even know the full name of the person who lives right next door. They ask the question: What is the most loving thing I can do for the people who live on my street or in my apartment building?

This toolkit builds upon the principles of the book and is designed to provide safe and practical ideas for neighboring during this unique moment that we find ourselves in. “COVID informed neighboring” is the antidote to the isolation and loneliness that social distancing can lead to.

The toolkit provides suggestions on ways to check on neighbors, sample notes and emails, safety guidelines, and more. Learn more at
