We started our week off with a trip to the City of Port Coquitlam Firehall #1 where we delivered Tim Hortons coffee and donuts to the fireman on duty early Sunday morning. They were very grateful for the gesture of kindness afterwards, we headed to Starbucks and spent the rest of the morning preparing cards for another RAK!

On Monday we paid a visit to some of the residents staying at the Eagle Ridge Manor in Port Moody where we delivered kindness cards and got to talk to a few of the residents. It was super nice for us to be able to interact with and visit them.

On Tuesday one of our rotaractors delivered flower arrangments to a few of the schools in our community to show appreciation for the teachers and all the hard work they put into educating children and youth. Thank you teachers of SD43, we appreciate you!

The remainder of our week was spent doing smaller acts of kindness to our coworkers at work and even in our local starbucks while grabbing coffee. Overall it was a wonderful week of kindness and we look forward to spreading kindness all year round!
