The legacy of Fred Rogers guides everything we do. From the beautiful simplicity of modeling nurturing interactions with young children to the thoughtful use of educational technology, we learn from Fred’s timeless wisdom and approach.

We are less than a week from concluding another Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive for those in need of gently used sweaters that you can donate to help a neighbor keep warm this winter. Collection bin is in the lobby at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh on the Northside of Pittsburgh.

Thank you for helping us keep our neighbors warm!

We appreciate character and respect for all people and all of life!
