It is hard to believe that anyone could criticize everyone’s favorite neighbor! It happens even to Mister Rogers’. Listen to Fred Rogers share about how he got criticized by parents for how he shared about Santa Claus. Click on the audio file below.

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.

Community Needs | Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

In the spirit of Fred Rogers’ lessons of helping others, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh holds an annual Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive each winter. Since 2001, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh has collected more than 35,500 sweaters, distributing them to families in need throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Thank you for helping us keep our neighbors warm!
We have collected over 35,000 sweaters over the years to be a blessing to those in need of keeping warm.


Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood 18th Annual Sweater Drive

It is about just being good neighbors! Caring like Fred taught us is when we gather gently used sweaters and then distribute them to those neighbors who need help to keep warm this winter.

Presbyterian Media Mission (PMM) and Presbyterian Churches of the Tri-State area join in supporting the effort to care for those needing help to keep warm as the weather shifts to being cold.

More from the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh about the launch of the sweater drive later today! Click on the link https://pittsburghkids.org/events/3715
