On Tuesday, October 24, 2023, hundreds of visitors came out to Impression 5 Science Center in Lansing to attend Be My Neighbor Day with WKAR.

This free special event for kids and families focused on being kind and thoughtful toward others.

Daniel Tiger and Katerina Kittycat from the PBS KIDS® show Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood were there for StoryTime with Mrs. Pizzo and posed for photos with fans.

Children and their families explored the science center and had a chance to meet some of the helpers in their community.

We extend a special thanks to PNC Grow up Great for their support and to the activity partners who helped make the day a rich experience for families: Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, Michigan State University Extension, Lansing School District Universal Preschool, MSU Community Music School, Lansing Community College Health and Human Services Division, Lansing Fire Department, Greater Lansing Area Moms, Michigan Community Visiting Nurses Association, Michigan Operation Lifesaver, CACS Head Start, Ingham ISD Early Childhood, Capital Area District Libraries.
