Neighbors Helping Neighbors


We know some of our neighbors need extra help as they age in place.

We also know that Bowie has many able-bodied retirees, civic organization members, and young people who are looking for ways to give back to their community.

The Community Services Department facilitates a program to match these two groups. We call the program “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” This program is designed to bridge the gap between elderly (65+) and disabled residents and adults and organizations looking for ways to reach out and help someone in need. This is strictly a volunteer program. More information is included in the application forms.


Light Yard Work

Volunteers may assist with light yard work - raking leaves, trimming shrubbery, gardening, mowing the lawn, or shoveling snow.  

Grocery and Pharmacy Pickup

Our other focus is on essential needs  - grocery shopping and pharmacy pickup requests.
