COVID-19: Let’s try this idea

Letter to the Editor: Dunkirk Effect

I saw an idea last night while watching TV. It’s called the Dunkirk effect, I believe. What about putting a Facebook page out there that could link people together for helping each other?

Example: If I need just a few things from the grocery store, or need to take something to the post office, or pick up a subscription from the pharmacy, I could go to the help site on Facebook, and ask someone for help. That way we can still be in quarantine, and I or they could get the help they need. I could put on Facebook, “I’m going into town, I live in Moyie Springs, can I pick up something for someone out here?”

If this pandemic is coming, we will need to help each other. It’s working in some places in the United States, figured I would at least put the idea out there.

Thank you,

Cynthia Cunningham
