Thank You Note Examples for a Neighbor's Help

Dear __________________:

Your willingness to help me during an especially difficult time is something I'll never forget. It takes a very caring person to drop everything in the middle of a busy day, to come to the aid of a neighbor.

Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. Please accept my sincere thanks.

Best regards,


Dear __________________:

Last month, when Elizabeth had surgery, a lot of us wanted to pitch in and help while she was recuperating at home. We were able to make a difference, because of the time that you spent organizing our efforts. You made sure that several of us were each assigned a task that Liz needed to have done each day.

You are to be commended for your willingness to jump in and help us to get organized. I admire your energy, thoughtfulness and your ability to keep everyone on track.

Everyone on the block joins with me in thanking you for what you did. Your example of caring and leadership has been an inspiration to all of us.

With sincere thanks,


Thank You Note Examples for a Friend

Dear ___________________:

You were so kind to take care of little Pete last Thursday. Friends like you, who can be depended upon to show up in a pinch, are hard to find. With your help, I was able to keep my doctor's appointment and get my prescription renewed, as planned.

Thanks so much for coming through for me. You are a good friend!

With warmest regards,


Thank you for your kindness last Saturday. After my accident I was concerned about how I would make good on my promise to water the Stevens' plants while they were on vacation.

The doctor says that I'll be good as new in a couple of months. When possible, I certainly want to return the favor.

Thanks for being such a great friend.



Dear ___________________:

How can I ever thank you for filling in for me at my daughter's club fundraiser? Only a true friend would give up a sunny Saturday afternoon to help the club of her friend's daughter pass out pizza kits to 350 faithful supporters!

Thanks to you, I was able to remain at home, and stay off of my sprained ankle as my doctor suggested. Jenny says that you were a big help with collecting the money and double-checking the orders.

Thanks for coming to our rescue when we needed you. You're a great friend!

With warmest regards,
