Random Acts of Kindness

randomacts_01Valentine’s Day marks the start of our new initiative to do random, small acts of kindness for people in our local communities. We’re starting it off by anonymously delivering small bags of chocolates for Valentine’s Day to local businesses and city departments. Each bag of chocolates also contains a card asking the recipient to do a simple, kind deed for someone else. We hope to see these cards circulating in the community and for some Random Acts of Kindness to be taking place in the Tri-Cities!

If you received one of our cards and bags of chocolate, please pay it forward, then visit our Random Acts of Kindness Wall and let us know!

reading_01We have just recently started a weekly reading buddies program with a grade 1 and 2 class at Bramblewood Elementary School in Coquitlam. Helping the kids with their reading skills is extremely rewarding, and they seem to be enjoying it too!

Monthly Tri-Cities Homeless Dinner

Since November 2012 we have been regularly hosting a free dinner for the less fortunate in the Tri-Cities every month. Previous menu items have included perogies, chilli, and rice krispie squares made by our very own members! In addition to cooking up the food we also host and serve everything ourselves. We look forward to hosting many more of these in the future!

Eagle Ridge Manor Christmas Party

This Christmas season we were able to help the Port Moody Rotary Club host a Christmas party for Eagle Ridge Manor, a long-term residential care facility in Port Moody. Several weeks prior to the event we visited the manor to decorate trees, hang garland and put up Christmas lights. Then on December 16, we spent the afternoon serving food and drinks, singing Christmas carols, and socializing with the residents. It was a lot of fun and everyone appreciated us being there and helping out!ermanor_02
