Nextdoor is launching a new national campaign and collaborating with National PTA to tap into neighborhoods to raise funds for schools and families as an unpredictable school year gets underway. From distance learning and food insecurities to technology access, school communities are facing unprecedented challenges. Through this collaboration, PTAs for the first time can instantly reach verified neighbors through Nextdoor to gain support for their mission and raise funds for students and schools in need—something they need now more than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With Nextdoor's new Sell For Good feature, neighbors can support their local schools by simply buying and selling household items on Nextdoor's For Sale & Free and donating the proceeds to their local PTAs.
