  • App helps connect, alert neighbors with safety concerns

     

    In the day and age of being more closely connected to the hundreds of people on a social media profile rather than the person living in the house next door, it may be easier for some to make the trip to the store rather than to ask their neighbors to borrow a cup of sugar, but what if there was an app to connect neighbors privately?
