Celebrate Good Neighbors!

National Good Neighbor Day, held each year in the U.S. on Sept. 28, celebrates the value of connecting with our neighbors and creating strong, healthy communities. Here are some fun ways to connect with your neighbors this year.

Spread Positivity

  • Use chalk to write encouraging messages on sidewalks.
  • Scatter small painted rocks with positive words throughout the neighborhood.
  • Write a nice letter of encouragement or a sweet and simple message for your neighbors.

Pop by With a Gift

  • Drop off some baked goods.
  • Share veggies, a small plant or a bouquet of flowers from your garden.
  • Include a short, handwritten note with your gift to make it even more special.

Connect with Good Neighbors

Here are some ways to build your neighborhood community year round.

  • Partner with a neighbor when renting specific tools for  landscaping projects or common household needs.
  • Create a neighborhood tool-sharing spreadsheet.
  • Pair up with another parent to lead a Boy or Girl Scout troop, coach sports or volunteer at a church function.
  • Help out when inclement weather strikes. Offer to plow snow, pick up debris and provide tools to help with clean-up efforts.
  • Start a monthly club to share meals, discuss books, watch movies or play games. A regularly scheduled get-together will promote deeper relationships.
  • Encourage your neighbors to decorate for different holidays. Set a time foe everyone to walk around and view the decorations. End the night with refreshments at your home.
  • Organize a group gift to honor significant life events, such as a new baby or passing of a loved one.
