National Good Neighbor Day


Acts of neighborliness are often simple gestures that help us be a good neighbor, lift up others, or make our community a place we love.

We invite you to take part in our 1,000 Acts of Neighborliness Challenge for one week -- from September 26 to October 2 – as a way to celebrate National Good Neighbor Day on Sept. 28.

The goal is for our Greene County residents to achieve 1,000 acts of kindness toward neighbors living near them. 

Tell us what act you or your family did during the week, if you witnessed an act of neighboring kindness, or if you were the recipient of a kind act. If it’s something visual, take a photo and send it via email at [email protected].

Share about these acts of neighborliness and get entered in our contest and drawings by completing a survey online.
