Area Man Offers Neighbors Help During Bitter Cold Snap

As the temperature dipped to -8 degrees Tuesday night, a Morton Grove family went door-to-door in their neighborhood posting letters offering help neighbors in their time of need during the bitter cold weather.

The family is offering any help that any neighbor needs, from getting a ride to pick up groceries, medicine from a pharmacy or the removal of snow.

The letter closes with a heartwarming offer for neighbors to drop into the residence of the Ahmed family for a hot cup of tea and samosas.


The man who wrote this letter, Sabeel Ahmed, says: "It is just good neighbors to make sure that not only I remain safe from the bitter cold, but I also make sure that others are also protected during the bitter cold."


Adds Sabeel: "It's another excuse for neighbors to meet each other and strengthen the bonds of community."

The letter reads:

Dear Neighbors,
Greetings of Peace

As temperatures dip way below zero, neighbors are the ones to help each other. My family and I are available if you need assistance in picking up groceries, medicine or removal of snow. You are also welcome to drop into our home for a hot tea and samosas. :)

The Ahmed Family

Sabeel and family have already received appreciation from one neighbor who e-mailed:

Thank you so much for such a kind and thoughtful letter. Please stay warm in this cold weather. If you or your family need anything we are just down the street - The Hartnett Family.


Comments welcome.
