South San Francisco, CA March 24, 2020
South City neighbors are seeking ways to brighten up the lives of others in many creative ways, as the mandated order to shelter in place continues through April 7th, and possibly beyond. We are sharing a few ideas and encourage neighbors to participate, and to think of new ways we can lift each other up, especially as we take isolated walks in our neighborhoods. From hunting Teddy Bears in windows, to enjoying off season Christmas lights – possibly including our own Sign Hill tree, to ‘chalk your walk’, South City neighbors are showing their resilience!
Please share your ideas and photos of what you see in YOUR neighborhood!

A wonderful creative suggested offered by South City neighbor, Tiffany; Encourage neighbors to put Teddy Bears up in their windows, to allow local children to hunt, and see them when they take walks in their area. “I saw this posting on Instagram and I thought we should make a post where neighbors and the community put a bear up in their window so families with kids can go in the “hunt” to find them by walking around” Tiffany writes us. It’s a great idea, and one we hope neighbors will take to heart!
We also have many people putting up Christmas lights on their homes, as a way to lighten the bleakness many of us are feeling. One neighbor was a bit hesitant, understandably uncertain what is ‘normal’ nowadays. “I am thinking of putting up some window lights, mostly Parols (Christmas Lanterns), but if there are more negativity than I won’t.” they wrote “I am wondering if you can do a poll to your followers to get their feelings on this.” So, what do you say South City?
Our Sign Hill tree is a beacon of light for many on the Peninsula, and this should be a time our City might consider lighting it, to offer light at this time of seemingly darkness. What says you Mayor Garbarino, is this something we might be able to accomplish, as we know how much this symbol brings to us all?
Another well received creative idea we are seeing through out South City, neighbors ‘Chalk Your Walk’ with uplifting messages for those walking in their blocks.
What other creative ideas do you have to lift your neighbors up?
