Activities for Be My Neighbor Day will include:
Since 1968, when Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood made its national public television debut, Fred Rogers began each episode with his simple signature question in song: “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” Be My Neighbor Day occurs on the first Saturday after what would have been Fred Rogers' 86th birthday, March 20th.
The event offers the chance for neighbors to meet neighbors and promotes a spirit of volunteerism - a natural extension of Fred Rogers’ legacy of neighborliness.
The whole neighborhood comes together to help celebrate "Neighbor Day."
The sweaters will benefit local families in the surrounding region. Learn more.
