Bright Spot – Ridgefield Park / Briarcliff

NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS

Letter to the Editor by John Sullivan

Dear Editor,

In an effort to further reduce trips to the grocery store and support shut-ins, people at risk, and those quarantined, a few bright and angelic members of the Ridgefield Park / Briarcliff neighborhood in Chapel Hill began offering to provide consolidated shopping.

They have an online portal where neighbors can request groceries from the local Harris Teeter. The orders are then consolidated and delivered. Payments can be made electronically (preferred/safer) or with cash.

This service started this week.

Consolidated shopping offers the community a way to minimize trips to grocery stores, further reducing the spread of the Covid-19 virus while
reducing the risk to the vital workforce at local grocery stores. This concept should be promoted around the region and throughout the nation.

Best regards,
John Sullivan
