Depending on where you live, you may see the people who live around you more than you see your own relatives. Getting to know those who live around you can promote friendships, create feelings of belonging, and promote understanding of those who are different from you. Overall, Neighbors Day is about:
- Spending time with neighbors you know well and getting to know those you don’t
- Developing a sense of belonging, mutual support, and a sense of security in your neighborhood and in our larger community
- Improving the quality of life in your neighborhood and fueling dynamic participation in neighborhood or community activities
- Forming relationships and friendships with people living around you to provide a long-term benefit in a crisis or at a time of need
- Having fun!
