The “Good Neighbor Project” was initiated by the Immanuel Mennonite Church in Virginia as a way to welcome local neighbors not born in the U.S. In recent months the signs have popped up across the country.
After multiple suggestions from volunteers and other supporters to bring the message to the Cedar Rapids community and two generous sponsorships from the Dockter family and Cedar Graphics, the Catherine McAuley Center is now distributing the famous “neighbor signs,” specially designed with five of the most relevant languages for the Cedar Rapids community: English, Spanish, Arabic, French, and Swahili.
You can pick up a neighbor sign from the Catherine McAuley Center at 866 4th Ave. SE, Cedar Rapids. Hours listed below. A suggested donation of $20 per sign is appreciated at pick-up.
Mon./Wed. 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Tues./Thurs. 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Fri. 8 a.m. to noon
