Nextdoor and Verizon team up to celebrate Neighbor Month

Kindness is core to Nextdoor’s purpose: to cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood they can rely on. In honor of Neighbor Month this September, Nextdoor and Verizon dialed up kindness across the country by connecting neighbors through Neighbor Month celebration events.


Nextdoor and Verizon put out a call for kindness, asking neighbors why we should come and celebrate Neighbor Month with their community. We then came together and connected neighbors by hosting five Neighbor Month events in Atlanta, Chicago, Ohio, and Salt Lake City. For neighbors not close by, we put together some tips and inspiration below on how to host your own neighborhood event during Neighbor Month and all year long.

Planning tips & checklist

  • Time/Date/Location
  • Attendees and RSVPs: Decide who you want to attend - kid-friendly or adults only?
  • Create an agenda: Decide what you want to happen at your event
  • Food & drinks: Make sure you have allergy-free options and ingredient labels
  • Entertainment, games, and activities
  • Post on Nextdoor and see who wants to join or help coordinate
  • Assign jobs to each helping neighbor to make the planning seamless


  • Food & drinks: Potluck, make it a theme, decide if you want a full meal or just snacks, keep it casual with just a front-porch coffee station or lemonade stand
  • Entertainment: Live music, DJ, local school band
  • Games & activities: Board games, lawn games, relay races, community improvement projects, book or toy exchange
  • Name tags: Make it easy for neighbors to meet and connect
  • Local officials: Consider inviting your local fire station, city council members, and even the mayor to really bring the community together
  • Take photos: Make sure to share photos of your event on Nextdoor
