Arkansas PBS and the Baxter County Library have partnered to sponsor a Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive as a tribute to Fred Rogers and his example of being a caring neighbor. The drive will be held November 1-30 at the Library.
“All of us, at some time or other, need help,” Fred Rogers said. “And, whether we’re giving or receiving a sweater, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That’s one of the things that connects us as neighbors – in our way, everyone is a giver and receiver.”
The Baxter County Library is one of many libraries across Arkansas participating in this year’s statewide Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive. During the Neighborhood Sweater Drive, members of the community are asked to donate new or gently worn sweaters, as well as other cold-weather clothing, at the Library, 300 Library Hill Ln, Mountain Home, AR 72653. Sweaters collected in this drive will be distributed by The Salvation Army.
