Nextdoor and Verizon Reunite for Nationwide Neighbor Month Celebrations 

SAN FRANCISCO, CA –  September 7, 2023 — Nextdoor (NYSE: KIND) and Verizon today announced the kickoff of a special event series, giving communities across the country a venue, opportunity and reason to reconnect. Collaborating for the second consecutive year, the two companies will host five neighborhood block parties, inviting neighbors to celebrate their local communities and one another. Coinciding with September’s Neighbor Month, the first event will take place on September 9th in Atlanta’s Parkway Village community. 

Over the next five weeks, Verizon and Nextdoor will host five all-ages neighborhood events in four cities across the country: Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Chicago and the Cleveland metro area. Neighbors in each city are invited to come together for an afternoon of games, music, activities and conversation. These free to attend events give neighbors the occasion to enjoy a meal from popular local food trucks, create connections, and rekindle and strengthen bonds with their community. 

“We’re proud to partner once again with Verizon to celebrate the uniqueness of every neighborhood and the resilience of connected communities,” said Heidi Andersen, Head of Revenue and Marketing, Nextdoor. “This Neighbor Month, we encourage everyone to take a moment to grab a coffee, meet for a meal, or just have a conversation with a neighbor. These casual moments of connection are the glue that strengthens our communities.” 

“Regular communication is the heartbeat of any healthy community – whether in person or virtually,” said Kelley Kurtzman, Chief Sales Officer for Verizon. “We’re proud to partner with Nextdoor on these neighborhood block parties and hope, through the power of Verizon Home Internet, we can continue to enable community conversations and connections long after these events are over.”
