Be a caring neighbor

Put on your favorite sweater and promote neighborliness.

"Won"t You Be My Neighbor?" Day is an annual event to celebrate Fred Rogers and his legacy of neighborliness on his birthday, March 20th.

But don't wait for Mr. Rogers' birthday to be neighborly. Here are a few ideas for how you can be a caring neighbor any day of the year:

  • Smile
  • Plant a tree
  • Say "Thank You"
  • Sort and recycle glass, newspapers, plastic and cardboard
  • Give the gift of laughter: clip cartoons, share funny stories
  • Offer to take the shopping cart back for someone loading his or her car
  • Shop with reusable bags
  • Make a donation to your favorite non-profit
  • Save throw-aways (egg cartons, ribbons, etc.) for art projects
  • Share a hug
  • Be a good friend by just listening
  • Reuse cardboard boxes to store toys and supplies
  • Volunteer at a senior center
  • Pay someone a compliment
  • Visit your local library for story time, crafts, songs and games

"Imagine what our real neighborhoods would be like if each of us offered as a matter of course, just one kind word to another person. One kind word has a wonderful way of turning into many." ~ Fred Rogers
