Can bond together and unite together be used interchangeably? Or Do they have slight different meanings depending on the context?

Do these two sentences both make sense?

We need to bond together as community and help each other out.

We need to unite together as a community and help each other out.

    Technically, I don't think you need "together" in either one. I would use "unite" rather than "bond"... and you might consider "come together" or "work together."

    I agree with Copyright that unite is better than "bond" when you're talking about a community (and you don't need the word "together" since "unite" includes that idea). We generally reserve "bond" for very close relationships such as family, lover, or close friend.
