Date Sept. 28, 2024 - Oct. 4, 2024


September 28th – October 4th is Missouri Good Neighbor Week. Signed into law in 2022, Missouri Good Neighbor Week encourages citizens of Missouri to “participate in events and activities to establish connections with their neighbors”. In 2023 our goal was to document 15,000 acts of neighboring….we documented 19,778! In addition there were 74 service events reported, thousands of visitors to the website, and 60 people were nominated as engaged neighbors. Thank you, Missouri, for showing up for your neighbors during Missouri Good Neighbor Week. We can’t wait for 2024. Check back here in the spring of 2024 for more information on our goals, plans, and resources!
