COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE LINE
The City of Burlingame and Burlingame Neighborhood Network (BNN) are partnering to offer a new "Community Assistance Line" for residents who need a helping hand during the County's Shelter-in-Place Order.
BNN encourages neighbors to reach out to one another via email, phone, or flyers on doorsteps to see if anyone living nearby needs help. BNN leaders suggest asking neighbors: (1) if they would appreciate a regular check-in call, and (2) if they need help with ordering food or supplies.
If you need help, please email BNN at info@BurlingameNetwork.org
, or call the City's Community Assistance Line at 650-558-7204 and leave a message, and a BNN representative will return your call. Please note that there may be a slight delay in receiving a return call, especially on weekends.
BNN encourages neighbors to connect with one another to build a sense of community, become informed about disaster preparedness, and support one another during emergencies.

The local neighborhood social media app Nextdoor has announced two new features to support neighbors in times of need. Nextdoor Groups
provide a great way to organize your neighbors for emergency preparedness, your homeowners association or other neighbor groups. The Nextdoor Help Map
lets neighbors in need request assistance with essential tasks, like picking up groceries during the stay at home order, and matches those needs to neighbors who volunteer to help.
BEARS FOR KIDS (AND ADULTS)
Help spread some cheer in your neighborhood by placing a stuffed bear in your window so that it is visible from the street or sidewalk. This will give the children in your community the fun and anticipation of going on a bear hunt to find and count as many bears as they can while out on walks with their families.
