Staying at home and heroes in the River Wards

The country, the city of Philadelphia and our River Wards communities are all experiencing a moment unlike any in recent memory.

Amid the ever-evolving COVID-19 crisis, with the ensuing guidelines and mandates, the world around us is a much different place.

The Star wants you, our readers, to help document this history as it happens.

We want to see how social distancing and staying at home has impacted our neighborhood streets.

We want to document how individuals are coping during times of uncertainty.

We want to hear how businesses are staying afloat during these difficult times.

And, we want to celebrate the essential employees who keep our communities moving forward, often while putting themselves on the backburner.

Share your stories, send your photos and highlight the heroes in the 19125, 19134 and 19137 ZIP codes.

Submissions should be emailed to Melissa Komar at mkomar@bsmphilly.com. ••
