Mayor Jeff Bloemker has proclaimed the month of April as “Bless Your Neighbor Month” in Effingham.
“I want to thank the Effingham Area Home Builders Association for engaging and deploying this gesture of goodwill,” said Bloemker. “They are setting a great example. If we would just look out for our own neck of the woods and tend to our neighbors who need a little help, we’d all benefit from it.”
Carolyn Hollar co-chair of the Bless Your Neighbor Program stated, “Helping your neighbors out could be as easy as replacing their front porch light for them if you notice it may have burnt out. It’s all about helping one another.”
