" Growing Communities Together"
Community Connect Progam – Neighbours Online
Often you hear about the "good old days". Those days and communities have changed forever with the internet and new interactive media. The connection between neighbours that made for good neighbourhoods has been lost to online communications and interaction.
Orbus Foundations Community Connect Program is about providing a place for our neighbourhoods to get back together, by harnessing and embracing new media and the internet. For our residents it is about connecting with others around them and knowing what businesses support them. For businesses it is about helping and getting to know the residents.
It use to be that businesses in your neighbourhood played an important role in making the community a better, more vibrant and liveable place. Just as resident support of businesses and each other is important, business support of residents is the also key. It is also key to the success of the Orbus Community Connect Program.
The Community Connect website’s purpose will be to promote a strong neighbourhood and surrounding community: to connect business and community, to connect community to community and to make distinct neighbourhoods a better place to live for all of us.
Joining Neighbours Online will make your life and your community better.
For business, if they connect to their community they will be more successful. Many neighbourhoods are an unique configuration of businesses and residential.
The best patrons are local residents, they just need to know who is there and who supports their area lifestyle.
The program is sponsored by local businesses and individuals to make neighbourhood a better place to live and enjoy. It is an idea that is good for all.
“Together we make for better future communities”
