When Malina Arevalo went into her garage one evening in San Francisco, she found perhaps one of the most frustrating situations for any driver: a dead battery and no way to jump her car.
After a moment of deliberation, Malina turned to Nextdoor for help. She posted to Nextdoor asking if anyone was available to give her a jump. If you think about it, this makes a ton of sense – there had to be someone nearby that could lend her a hand! With Nextdoor, she could easily ask for help.
“Within minutes, three people responded offering to jump my car,” says Malina. It just goes to show: ask, and you will receive, particularly if you’re well-connected to your neighborhood on Nextdoor!
