Neighbors Day

Program Description

An annual one-day event that serves older adults and other individuals who need assistance with spring yard work. Volunteers work in teams to rake lawns and washes windows. Each year the Neighbors Day Committee has coordinated approximately 200 community volunteers to make this day a reality. Volunteer teams include families, businesses, service organizations and church and school groups. Through their tremendous support, they served an average of 80 households in La Crescent each year since the event started in April of 2006.

2020 La Crescent Neighbors Day Canceled

La Crescent Neighbors Day is canceled for 2020. Safely mobilizing hundreds of volunteers during the current COVID-19 pandemic is creating unprecedented challenges with limiting gathering size, sharing tools and vehicles, and social distancing. Therefore, the Neighbors Day committee has concluded that it is in the best interest of the community to cancel this year’s event and look forward to our safe return in 2021.

La Crescent Neighbors Day is a partner program of La Crescent Area Healthy Community Partnership, cosponsored by the City of La Crescent and La Crescent Applefest, and partners with ISD #300 Community Education. And it’s all made possible with your help!
