"That's What Neighbors Do" is a sequel video to "People Matter Most". It shows that being neighborly isn't just a "nice" idea. It's what helps diverse families survive the hardships of 2020. New friendships thrive, and helping each other becomes much more obvious. All on College St. in Lewiston, Maine can see that's what neighbors do.
