Help out your neighbor and donate a new or gently worn sweater at your local library! In recognition of Fred Roger’s efforts to encourage the good-neighbor spirit, t the annual Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive is being held Nov. 1-30, 2018. AETN has partnered with more than 30 libraries across the state to collect and distribute the sweaters collected to local charities and the Arkansas Salvation Army.
In the past, more than 5,000 clothing items have been collected in this statewide drive, and we hope this year is another banner year for neighborliness and support. Since 1997 when Fred Rogers himself began this initiative, winters have been warmer and cozier for those who have received a sweater from a giving neighbor.
Drop-off locations for sweater drive include:
AETN Headquarters (Conway).
Alma Public Library.
Arkansas State Library (Little Rock).
Barton Library (El Dorado).
Boyd T. and Mollie Gattis Logan County Library (Paris).
