20th Annual Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive

Donate Jan. 13–Feb. 12, 2017 at participating partner locations.

January 13–February 12, 2017

“The gifts we treasure most over the years are often small and simple. In easy times and tough times, what seems to matter most is the way we show those nearest us that we’ve been listening to their needs, their joys, and to their challenges.”
—Fred Rogers

This year marks the 20th annual Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive. From Jan. 13 through Feb. 12, KCTS 9 Television and PCC Natural Markets will be honoring the legacy of Fred Rogers by collecting new and gently used (clean) sweaters, coats and cold-weather gear, especially items for children and teens, to help those in need face the cold winter months.

Look for the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive collection bins at the participating partner locations listed below. Donated items will benefit Wellspring Family Services, Queen Anne Helpline and Northwest Center, nonprofits serving Seattle and King County.

To kick off the Sweater Drive this year, we will hold a launch party on Friday, Jan. 13, with special guest Daniel Tiger!

The launch party is a free family event, but timed tickets will be required; stay tuned for more information.

Stay tuned to KCTS 9 and be sure to follow @KCTS9 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates!
