Won't You Be My Neighbor
Thursday, March 7, 2013
“Imagine what our real neighborhoods would be like, if each of us offered as a matter of course, just one kind word to another person... One kind word has a wonderful way of turning into many." -Fred Rogers
This month marks what would have been Mr. Roger's 85th birthday. In honor of him we celebrate with our annual Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Day by wearing a sweater and doing something neighborly.
Peace Coffee Shop and Mark Grunewald from Prime Mortgage. are hosting an all day clothing drive on Wednesday, March 20th, to benefit People Serving People, one of the largest homeless shelters in Minnesota. Drop your clothing donations at the shop between 6:30am and 7:00pm and you'll receive a free cup of coffee. There will also be juice boxes & balloons for children, as well as a prize giveaway for a wooden neighborhood trolley just like the one in the T.V. show.
Please join us, and don't forget to wear a sweater (and bring one to donate)!
