Dear Neighbor Day
I want to be a team captain but don’t have an exact number of people that will be on my team. What should I do?
Just give us your best guess. The Dear Neighbor Day committee will be communicating with you frequently with reminders and updates.
What kind of work will we be doing?
The work site you are assigned to is based on your personal interest or the interest of your team. Work varies from organizing food pantries, serving food to people in need, yard work, home-repair, cleaning, sorting recycling, etc. We will be sure to communicate with you as best as we can.
Can I bring my kids?
YES! Please register each child individually, and indicate in the 'Comment' section their age. We will follow up with you to determine what type of work your family will be able to do together if you don't already have a work site assignment.
