Daniel Tiger

West Virginia Public Broadcasting and the Charleston Town Center are teaming up for the 2018 Daniel Tiger Sweater Drive.

We're asking for new or gently used sweaters to help those in need face the cold winter months.

Donations can be made at the service desk inside the Charleston Town Center throughout November.

Sweaters will be delivered by employees of West Virginia Public Broadcasting to a local charity.

Please, won't you join us by helping your neighbor?

PBS Kids provides content to help parents and caregivers cope with emergency situations.  There are also tools to make sure there is an emergency plan in place.  These topics can be difficult to talk about, but with the help of characters such as Daniel Tiger and Arthur, there is a framework in which to have that discussion.

WVPB and The Charleston Town Center Mall are bringing PBS Kids favorite, Daniel Tiger, to the mall on Monday, June 20 as part of FestivAll.  Daniel will be at the Picnic Place in the Mall from 11a to 1p. To let young Daniel Tiger fans know they are part of the community, we will be asking them to complete a simple form to let us know what they are doing to help others in their neighborhood.  We will share some of the responses of these young citizens in a future post.

Daniel Tiger met all sorts of friends on Saturday, April 2 at our Morgantown Studios.  Over 300 people stopped by to say hello to Daniel,  bring sweaters to contribute to our Mr. Roger's Neighborhood Sweater Drive and take part in activities aimed at helping neighbors.

Children and their parents made placemats for the elderly,  created cards for Vets, and planted seeds to replant in their yards all as part of learning how to be good neighbors.
