Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Sweater Drive 
General Event Information
Event Category:
Community Events
Dates and Times:
January 12-February 8, 12:00-12:00AM

Help neighbors in need stay warm this winter by donating your new or gently worn sweaters, coats and cold-weather gear to KCTS 9's 17TH annual Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Sweater Drive, running from January 12 through February 8. All donated items will go to Northwest Center and Wellspring Family Services serving Seattle and King County. Look for the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive collection bin at any PCC Natural Markets location or Sound Credit Union location in Western Washington; at the Seattle Children’s Museum; or drop your items off at KCTS9’s Seattle Center studio. Warm clothing for children is greatly needed, but all new or gently used adult and children’s sweaters and coats will be accepted. “All of us, at some time or other, need help,” said Fred Rogers. “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.”

Fred Rogers began the sweater drive and inspired its spirit of generosity and neighborliness for six years before he passed away in 2003. His red sweater (knitted by his mom) and tennis shoes bring to mind comfort, care and joy in learning for millions. KCTS9 is honored to continue the program in his memory. Last year’s Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive collected more than 7,000 sweaters and coats for families in need throughout Seattle and King County.
