Celebrate random acts of kindness: nominate your neighbor to be recognized for Neighbor Day!

In 1995, Phinney Ridge activist Judith Wood suggested that the City designate “a special day to celebrate the goodness in those around us and to reach out and strengthen our bonds to each other.” Mayor Norm Rice declared this Neighbor Appreciation Day, and the observance has grown every year since. This year, it seems more important than ever to recognize the power of random acts of kindness and to amplify the generosity and love that has sprouted out of hardship.

Throughout the duration of the pandemic, we have seen people rise above fear and isolation to lend a helping hand and support their neighbors in need. There have been countless stories of people stepping up to selflessly provide food, supplies, shelter, financial support, and, above all else, compassion.

As we prepare for our annual Neighbor Day celebration, scheduled for Saturday, May 8, we want to amplify these acts of kindness and honor the people across the city who have gone above and beyond to help their community.

If there is a person, business, or organization you believe deserves to be recognized, we encourage you to nominate them!

In the week leading up to Neighbor Day, we will highlight your stories on our social media platforms, newsletter, and blog. We hope that by sharing the ways people are giving back and showing compassion, we can continue to heal, rebuild, and come out of this crisis a stronger, healthier, and more equitable city.


Nomine a su vecino 

A medida que nos preparamos para nuestra celebración anual del Día del Vecino, programada para el sábado, 8 de mayo, queremos multiplicar los actos de amabilidad y honrar a las personas de toda la ciudad que dieron un paso más para ayudar a su comunidad. Si hay alguien que, a su criterio, merece un reconocimiento, lo alentamos a que lo nomine usando el formulario de abajo.
