MapleGOOD serves as a platform for mutual aid in Maplewood and Richmond Heights; for neighbors to come together to build relationships and community in helping one another. Since MapleGOOD’s inception in March 2020, all the programs that MapleGOOD has fostered have been developed, implemented and adapted organically from conversations, support and hard work of the community. Some programs have been time-bound, some have evolved over time, and others are steadfast staples.
There have even been some ideas that haven’t yet found their moment, but all ideas are welcome. Once an idea has community support, and a person willing to take the lead, it then has wings to take flight.
