Be My Neighbor Day to Support Neighbors in Need with Daniel Tiger, June 10
Free Family-Fun Event Packed with Kindness Activities, Food, Music and More 

(Las Vegas) – Celebrate a beautiful day in the neighborhood with Daniel Tiger and all our friends for “Be My Neighbor Day” on Saturday, June 10 at the Windmill Library, 7060 W. Windmill Ln., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Together with the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District (LVCCLD) and the United Way of Southern Nevada, Vegas PBS is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with Vroom. This initiative is part of the Bezos Family Foundation and is committed to inspiring families to turn everyday moments into brain building moments to nurture children’s growing minds. Through Vroom and the Fred Rogers Company, Vegas PBS secured a grant to support this mission in Southern Nevada with Be My Neighbor Day.

“Do something nice for your neighbor, do something nice for your friend,” as we take this day to honor the life and legacy of Fred Rogers by participating in community-focused acts of kindness. “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” welcomes a new generation of children and families and will help guide Southern Nevadans on how to be a caring neighbor on Be My Neighbor Day. Community partners will lead several kindness activities including creating place mats for homebound seniors with Helping Hands of Las Vegas Valley, writing letters to veterans with US Vets and decorating lunch bags with the Ronald McDonald House for families receiving services. There also will be informational booths providing resources on how to be active in the community through Club Read with the LVCCLD, volunteerism with United Way, the summer food program with Three Square and much more! 

Everyone is encouraged to bring a new or lightly used sweater to donate to our “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” Sweater Drive. Families and children will have the chance to meet Daniel Tiger and say “Ugga Mugga!” in the Story Room by pre-registering online. Neighbors can spend the day grooving to music with a DJ, enjoying a cool snack from the Kona Ice food truck, finding ways to engage digitally at the PBS KIDS mobile app station, and getting their faces painted.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Clark County Fire Department will be on site sharing their part in being a good neighbor and giving tours of a police car and fire truck. McGruff from the Metro Volunteer Program will be on watch and ready to take photos with families.
