NeighbourLink North York Meet Your Neighbour Week
Aug 14 – Aug 21 all-day
NeighbourLink North York Meet Your Neighbour Week

A week of building community connections through meet ups in the neighbourhood!

About this event

NeighbourLink North York is excited to announce Meet Your Neighbour Week August 14th to the 21st! A full week of connecting with all of the amazing residents that make Willowdale such a special place! What could be better after a year and a half of social isolation?

What is Meet Your Neighbour Week?

A series of meet ups in our neighbourhood organized for neighbours by neighbours! These neighbour meet ups can range from offering lemonade on your driveway for those who live on your street or hanging out in a park with the people that live on the same floor of your condo! The week will culminate with Willowdale Yard Sale Day on August 21st.

How does it work?

If you would like to host a small meet up for your neighbours you can organize it on your own or you can register here with the free “Neighbour Meet Up Host” ticket. When you do you’ll receive a Meet Your Neighbour Kit. It will include ideas for your meet up and a poster that you can add your meet up details to and use as an invitation for your neighbours.

What is Willowdale Yard Sale Day?

Willowdale Yard Sale Day will be on Saturday August 21st. It’s an opportunity to sell your treasures and shop the neighbourhood before the end of the summer. You can register your yard sale here with the “Yard Sale Host” ticket. When you register, your yard sale address and time will be added to the Willowdale Yard Sale Map which we will be advertising to help drive business to your sale. Registration will also get you a custom made yard sign!

If you live in a house and would be willing to host a condo resident on your lawn or driveway, you can let us know in the registration form as well!

Food Drive Component:

We are piloting our Willowtree Food Bank in August and would love to collect non-perishable food from the community throughout Meet Your Neighbour Week. We encourage Neighbour Meet Up and Yard Sale Day Hosts to collect food from their neighbours at their event to help build our inventory! At the end of the week there will be an opportunity to drop off the food or have it collected!

You can also make a donation to our food bank through the registration!

Guidelines:

We ask that all participants abide by current COVID -9 guidelines and restrictions.

Please be respectful of your fellow neighbours, be inclusive, friendly and safe!

Any questions can be sent to NeighbourLink’s Event Coordinator Sebastian at sebastian@neighbourlink.org.

We cannot wait to hear all about your meet ups and yard sales! Tag NeighbourLink North York and We Love Willowdale on social media! And above all have fun!
