Sept. 28 is Good Neighbor Day

Missouri Good Neighbor Week starts Sept. 28—National Good Neighbor Day—and goes until Oct. 4. The event is dedicated to spreading acts of neighborly kindness right where you live.

The acts of kindness are done by individual neighbors reaching out to the people living closest to them. Participants are encouraged to focus on the eight doors closest to them. Write a note, give a gift, write positive messages on your sidewalks, or make an effort to meet someone new.

Organizations participate by getting the word out, sponsoring prizes for Engaged Neighbor Awards, and hosting events.
