Jackson’s Community Bridge

The Jackson Public Library has announced something they’re calling, “The Jackson Bridge.” The idea? To build a bridge between neighbors to help each other. The program allows people to sign up to be a part of an electronic mailing list. Once a member, people will receive emailed requests for help from throughout the community. The goal is to create a community forum for people to request favors such as asking a neighbor to grab a grocery item you need to pick up but can’t. Organizers say the list does have guidelines to prevent abuse. Listeners can find more information at the Jackson Public Library’s website.
