Be My Neighbor Day

WGTE, PNC Grow Up Great and The Fred Rogers Company celebrated a beautiful day in the neighborhood on September 23, 2017 at Walbridge Park in Toledo, Ohio. 

Approximately 1,500 children and families met Daniel Tiger and Katerina Kittycat, practiced their caring neighbor skills by making crafts and cards for senior citizens and veterans, met community helpers and created and brought home first aid kits.

Families who attended Be My Neighbor Day donated a total of 6,033 diapers and 11,754 wipes to benefit the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department's Getting to 1 Diaper Bank and area families in need.

Be My Neighbor Day was supported by PNC Grow Up Great in partnership with The Fred Rogers Company.
