Children can also participate in service projects to support our local nonprofit beneficiaries:

» Creating thank you cards for active duty military and veterans
» Assemble toiletry and craft kits for hospitalized children and families

This event is free to everyone, but families are encouraged to bring the following items to donate:

All of the items collected at the Daniel Tiger Be My Neighbor Day event will be donated to families in need across North Texas.
