Missouri Good Neighbor Week

Do a simple act of kindness
in your neighborhood.


Date Sept. 28, 2023 - Oct. 4, 2023

12,594 Acts of Neighboring

Missouri Good Neighbor Week starts on National Good Neighbor Day, September 28, and runs until October 4. Signed into law by Missouri Governor Mike Parsons (July 2022), the week's goal is to encourage Missourians to do acts of neighboring and nominate their engaged neighbors for an award.

In 2022, thousands of Missourians participated, reporting 12,594 acts of neighboring and submitting 115 nominations for an engaged neighbor. The impacts of this one week reached 63 of the 114 counties in Missouri. Plus, 17 individuals were honored statewide for outstanding acts of neighboring and the top engaged neighbor nominations.

Celebrate Missouri Good Neighbor Week with us in 2023! Information for how to get involved will be available Spring 2023.
