2022 Mister Rogers Neighborhood Sweater Drive - November 5-30

Donate your new or gently used sweaters at Arkansas PBS Headquarters or one of more than 45 libraries across the state.

Won't you help a neighbor? This November, join Arkansas PBS and libraries across the state as we collect new and gently used sweaters and winter clothing to share with those in need.

During our last drive, Arkansans donated more than 5,000 sweaters for neighbors in need and, as what promises to be another chilly winter approaches, we hope to collect sweaters and clothing items to reach even more neighbors.

Have a question or would like to know more? Contact Nick Starnes at nstarnes@myarkansaspbs.org.

Fred Rogers

Fred Rogers began the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Sweater Drive in 1997 as a way to encourage the neighborly spirit, and we're proud to continue his legacy of being a caring neighbor. Every sweater collected in the 2022 Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Sweater Drive will be donated directly to individuals in need through The Salvation Army of Arkansas or local charities.
