Seattle Neighbor Day May 4
Mark your calendars and join us in celebrating Seattle’s 25th Annual Neighbor Day on Saturday, May 4. Yes, it is a bit later this year. We decided to move it into Spring in hopes of taking advantage of nicer weather while also giving people more time to plan!
Neighbor Day is a special day set aside to reach out to neighbors, make new friends, and express thanks to those who help make your neighborhood and community a great place to live. We encourage all Seattle residents to celebrate this day by indulging in random acts of kindness. Residents, businesses, or community groups are all invited to participate however they like. The main goal is simply to reach out and connect with your neighbors through generosity.
We will make it as easy as possible for you to participate! Stay tuned for a list of ideas and resources that can help you plan your Neighbor Day event or activity.
In the meantime, save the date and start thinking about how you want to celebrate.
If you have any questions or want to bounce ideas off someone, contact Neighbor Day coordinator Sam Read at firstname.lastname@example.org.
