Look for ways that you and your family and friends can do for your neighbors!

Neighbor Days can be a potluck block party, an outdoor movie screening to a neighborhood yard sale. The emphasis is on connecting to those who live around you and fostering meaningful neighborhood connections. Gathering your neighbors together, even for one day a year, will provide you with the opportunity to meet new neighbors, get to know your neighbors better, and improve the quality of life in your neighborhood. And, it will be fun! Also, getting to know your neighbors has also been known to help prevent crime and improve community spirit.
