11 Acts of Kindness for Celebrating Good Neighbor Day in Omaha

September 28, 2020Add a CommentPosted By

In the early 1970s, Becky Mattson of Lakeside, Montana created a special “Good Neighbor Day” for her community as a way to get to know her neighbors better. Then, in 1978, President Jimmy Carter named a day in late September as an official National Good Neighbor Day, stating “As our Nation struggles to build friendship among the peoples of this world, we are mindful that the noblest human concern is concern for others. Understanding, love and respect build cohesive families and communities.”
