The Random Act of Kindness movement has a simple purpose.
“Our mission is to change schools, the workplace, families and society through kindness. We work toward that goal by creating free content that promotes kindness toward others and teaches important kindness skills to kids,” is the stated purpose of a nationwide movement that connects students, parents and community members to people around them who need a simple helping hand.
Albia Superintendent Kevin Crall is working with the Albia Ministerial Association and the Monroe County Hospital and Clinics to create a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) Day on Friday, June 28.
High school students will be enlisted to help provide kind acts for people (or groups of people) with simple needs.
“It could be as simple as cleaning up one of the parks in town,” said Crall. “It could be helping out with a specific need for an elderly person, a single mom or an organization.”
Crall said people with simple needs or projects needing a Random Act of Kindness can call him at 641-932-2161 extension 1101 or 1102.
