MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — VINE Faith in Action is launching the Greater Mankato Good Neighbor Project at Mankato’s Night to Unite Tuesday.

The project’s goal is to further connect neighbors and end social isolation and loneliness.

Mankato Public Safety will be handing out flyers about the Good Neighbor Project, which includes tips on how to be a good neighbor.

“Some of these gestures were once commonplace, but as the world has become more complex and isolating, have gone by the wayside,” VINE’s Executive Director Pam Determan said.

Why is it important to be a good neighbor? It reduces stress and loneliness and creates a sense of community and security. Being friendly is not only good for your neighbor but also you.
