Good Neighbor Day
Good Neighbor Day is a collaborative partnership between the University of Maryland, the City of College Park, and The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC). The event brings together the College Park community to beautify shared spaces, educate and engage in sustainable practices, and take pride in Greater College Park.
“The University of Maryland became the nation’s first Do Good campus last fall, and since then, we’ve seen a major influx in the number of students, faculty, staff, and alumni who are eager to work together to positively impact the community,” said Gloria Aparicio Blackwell, director of the university's Office of Community Engagement. “I’m so thrilled that we saw such a spike in volunteer participation at Good Neighbor Day and that the message to ‘do good’ is resonating with our community.”

As part of Good Neighbor Day, we encourage the campus community and community stakeholders to collect non-perishable goods to be delivered to the College Park Community Food Bank. Donations may be dropped off at on- and off-campus locations.
