At Nextdoor, we’re passionate about being good neighbors, and we know our members are too! Every day, we hear inspiring and touching stories about how neighbors come together to support each other in many ways. From a simple hello to welcome a new neighbor, to stories about neighbors working together to plant a community garden or find a lost pet, we are constantly reminded about the power of good neighbors.
In honor of National Good Neighbor Day on September 28th, Nextdoor is celebrating good neighbors by recognizing these wonderful moments, big or small, all month long!
National Good Neighbor Day was founded in the early 1970s by Montana native, Becky Mattson, and is now a nationally-recognized day to be thankful and appreciate good neighbors. Now, more than 40 years later, Nextdoor is furthering Becky’s mission by recognizing good neighbor moments the entire month of September.
