Do people in your community take care of one another?

Whether community you feel apart of, whether it be race, religion, geographic area. Can you rely on them for help if something were to happen to you or your family?

Sometimes. If there's a tragedy people are usually pretty good about coming together to help.

110% we are Jewish and the community really takes care of one another. There's even a Hasidic community in which new moms stay home for 30 days and are pretty much pampered by other women. They don't have to cook, clean, go shopping, they have babysitters on call, and some other things. Amazing lol!

Yes, but not exactly in a good way. Like when someone is murdered no one will talk. The whole no snitching thing is big here. Same with car theft and other bs.

They are good about coming together and helping eachother, yes, especially our church family. Even our hometown family back from high school is great about supporting eachother. That's what you get in the good ol' midwest.

For the most part yes, if there is a tradgity they really come together, but we also have lots of donating food days for the less fortunate, and there are several shelters for the homeless, whether families or single. The electric companies here take donations to help low income people a couple times a year,  they have school supplies/clothes give aways  for low income. This is a great town in may ways.

Awesome town. A lot of families are well off but not bitchy or self absorbed. Really genuinely nice people. I haven't needed help but I've seen people rally around others and it's great to see.

Yes. There was a flood last year that destroyed hundreds of homes and 2 schools in our area. People from our area, other communities and states came to help with the clean up.
