A community is a group of like-minded individuals supporting each other towards a common goal. It helps provide a sense of belonging, safety and security to members, and strong, healthy communities have the power to achieve great things.Tight knit communities can help reduce crime and poverty, share resources, and lift you up when needed. Connect with your community through volunteering, neighbourhood projects and/or public events. Make use of community garden plots, introduce yourself to your neighbours, host a block party, install a free library or bus shelter, support local schools, assist locals when the weather gets bad, etc. Building a community takes work but many hands make it light. How do you contribute to your community? What can you do to bring people together?
