Be My Neighbor Day invites children and families to participate in family volunteer activities that support neighbors in need.
Make the most of this beautiful day! Meet first responders, dance with a DJ and enjoy story time, all while learning about ways to do something nice for your neighbor. It's a "grr-ific" way to begin a lifetime of neighborly volunteerism!

Mister Rogers began each episode of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood with his simple signature question in song: “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”
Daniel Tiger welcomes a new generation of children and families to his Neighborhood. In a special “Neighbor Day” episode, Daniel learns that it feels good to be neighborly and that one kind act can lead to many. His first good deed starts a chain reaction of kindness all around the Neighborhood, resulting in the declaration of “Neighbor Day!”
“Do something nice for your neighbor, do something nice for your friend.”
The whole neighborhood comes together to help celebrate "Neighbor Day."
