Connecting the community with kindness.

We were honored last week to, along with the students of Compass Montessori School, accept the City Council's and Mayor's proclamation, designating February 11 – 17, 2019 as Kindness Week in the City of Wheat Ridge. This was the perfect way to kick off a week-long effort to connect the community with kindness and we hope that the sentiment will continue all year. 

As the proclamation states: "…by recognizing these acts of kindness, all members of our community will be made aware of the importance of being kind to others throughout the year."

Please read the full proclamation here.

Thank you to all who participated and shared their Random Acts of Kindness with us. You have truly warmed our hearts.

With gratitude,

Krista Lewis, Executive Director
