Meridianville Rallies During COVID-19 Outbreak

Tucked away in the space between Alabama A&M and Hazel Green is the bucolic Meridianville, a place most forget about when they talk about Huntsville and the surrounding areas. The neighborhoods are calm, the crime rate is low and a lot of streets look like something right out of a movie set in 1985 — in a good way.

In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, Meridianville is rallying together to keep spirits up. Reed’s Farmer’s Market turned their hay bale bear into a first responder while a resident in the Bainbridge neighborhood chalked “This too shall pass” on their fence. 

The Fox Run neighborhood is hosting a “bear hunt” where residents put teddy bears in windows for children to see as they walk with their parents. 

Others, like The Harbour UMC, provide food to anyone who needs it. Their food ministry started on March 17 and offers boxes of food every Tuesday for anyone who stops by. 

If you know of someone in any neighborhood who is helping out during the COVID-19 pandemic, comment on this post or send an email to [email protected].
