Manhattan Good Neighbors (MGN)
Manhattan Good Neighbors (MGN) specifically focuses on neighborhoods around the K-State campus. MGN provides opportunities for students and permanent residents to build and maintain positive relationships.
MGN was created in 2007 as an initiative out of Student Governing Association and the City of Manhattan. Projects include Furniture Amnesty Day, community clean-ups, disaster response and preparedness, and senior assistance. Our goals are:
- To educate K-State students, permanent residents and the city of Manhattan in maintaining collaborative partnerships and civic engagement for the benefit of our neighborhoods
- Establish and build relationships between K-State students and residents of Manhattan by engaging in civic leadership and service
- Serve those in need to impact and make a positive difference in the Manhattan community
Fake Patty's Day Clean Up
Our annual Fake Patty's Day Clean-Up will take place on Sunday, March 9th from 10AM - 12PM. Students will meet at Triangle Park next to Aggieville and divide and conquer to help clean up the neighborhoods surrounding Aggieville. Come join us for some great community service and help build positive relationships in our Manhattan community. Remember, there's nothing fake about the mess we make! Volunteers can sign up through the following link: http://www.bit.ly/HOKS_signup
