Leading up to the week of March 17-23 we encourage people to register for our first Neighborhood Exploration Team Trip in celebration of Won't You Be My Neighbor Day (March 20), which celebrates the birthday of Mister Fred Rogers.

This is a virtual team experience, but you will have individual actions you can take as part of the overall experience!

This is your week to take action in your neighborhood and community to build connections and grow kindness. Come along with us and discover your neighborhood and how you can positively impact your community from right where you live.

Participants will receive two emails a day during our trip week with exclusive content related to this trip, being an engaged neighbor, activities for their neighborhood, and Mister Rogers. You will learn about special events that day related to our neighborhoods, volunteer needs, activity packets to download, and pay-it-forward events during the week. We will even have drawings for prizes among individuals who provide an action report via our website.

The idea is to explore your neighborhood and be a blessing to neighbors with an act of kindness.
