Walmart and Nextdoor have announced the launch of their “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” programme, an effort to make it easier for neighbours across the country to help one another during the Covid-19 pandemic. This programme builds on Nextdoor’s recently launched “Groups” feature which enables members to organise around a shared interest or project.
 
Through this new programme, a first for both companies, Nextdoor members in cities across the country can now request assistance – or offer to help someone in their community – with shopping for their essential items at Walmart. This support network makes it easier for vulnerable community members to coordinate the pickup and delivery of their groceries, medications and other essentials with a neighbour who is already planning a shopping trip to their local Walmart store – completely contact-free.
 
The new “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” initiative follows recent moves by Walmart to make other shopping services, like checking out with Walmart Pay and its curbside pickup and delivery services, contact-free.
 
“I’ve seen first-hand the countless ways our Walmart team is working together during this challenging time, leading with humanity, compassion and understanding to serve our customers,” Janey Whiteside, Walmart’s chief customer officer, said in a press release. “We’re continuing to do that through our new programme with Nextdoor. We’re connecting neighbours to each other so that more members of our communities have access to essential items, while limiting contact and the number of people shopping in our stores.”
 
“We’re inspired everyday by the kindness of people around the world who are stepping up and helping out. In recent weeks, we’ve been blown away by the number of members who have raised their hand to run an errand, go to the grocery store, or pick up a prescription for a neighbour,” Sarah Friar, Nextdoor CEO, said. “We’re grateful for Walmart’s partnership to make this important connection between neighbours around vital services, and we’re proud to come together to ensure everyone has a neighbourhood to rely on.”
