President Jimmy Carter has long been known for his enduring and great love of all peoples. This continues to be lived out in communities all across the United States via his involvement with Habitat for Humanity and also National Good Neighbor Day which he helped establish by presidential proclamation in 1978. (see below)

Please join with Carol Kyer, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Denton County and other business, community, faith, and non-profit leaders in celebrating National Good Neighbor Day on September 17, 2017.


In 1978, United States President Jimmy Carter issued Proclamation 4601 which reads:

“As our Nation struggles to build friendship among the peoples of this world, we are mindful that the noblest human concern is concern for others. Understanding, love, and respect build cohesive families and communities. The same bonds cement our Nation and the nations of the world. For most of us, this sense of community is nurtured and expressed in our neighborhoods where we give each other an opportunity to share and feel part of a larger family. Therefore — I call upon the people of the United States and interested groups and organizations to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.”
