Nextdoor and Walmart Partner to Launch “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” Program

Written by #TeamNextdoor

We’ve partnered with Walmart on a new program called “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” to make it easier for neighbors across the country to help one another during COVID-19.

The “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” program builds on our recently launched feature, Nextdoor Groups, that enables members to organize around a shared interest or project. With “Neighbors Helping Neighbors,” Nextdoor members can now ask a neighbor for help with shopping at their local Walmart. This support network makes it easier for neighbors to connect and coordinate the pickup and delivery of groceries, medications and other essentials, completely contact-free.

If you need help or want to offer help, just go to the “Groups” tab and you will see Walmart stores in your area pinned to the top of the page. You will be prompted to share a message in the group feed to either request or offer help. You can then connect with a neighbor via the message board or direct message to work out details of the shopping trip. Additionally, the Nextdoor Help Map will now display Walmart locations, store hours, and store information. 

We are inspired by the outpouring of kindness we’ve seen on the platform and across the world, and we’re grateful for Walmart’s partnership to make this important connection between neighbors around vital services. We need each other now more than ever, and we’re proud to be a platform where people come together to ensure everyone has a neighborhood to rely on.

  • This is good as it affords another means to help/receive help. I only wish Walmart would do more to help their employees.

  • Wonderful! Will it be available to someone like me to post “asks?” I’m the Executive Director of the DuBois Family Foundation in Kent, Ohio, and we’ve got Volunteer opportunities galore in connection with our “Great Ohio Health Hunt” initiative. (We are a private, 501c3.) In any event, thanks for making this technology available!

  • It is marvelous to be retiring from, well, retirement! How fortunate I am to focus on my husband, Greg and nature. And, of course, a prominent political party. Let’s communicate!

    • In the 1970’s and 80’s I wrote a column, often running a half a page long in the Austin American Statesman Newspaper. The weekly article was entitled, The Birds’ Best. A reader called and asked if I ran a restaurant! ”No, ” said I, we live at the top of a cliff overlooking Lake Travis! Our view is all-encompassing, with seldom a human in sight.
