A local organization is encouraging everyone to extend kindness and generosity during one summer day.

On June 10, the Fort St. John Association for Community Living is holding its third annual Pay It Forward Day.

The idea behind Pay It Forward Day is to encourage individuals to perform random or planned acts of kindness within the community. Such acts can be as simple as opening a door for someone, volunteering or buying a coffee for someone.

The intention of the Fort St. John Association for Community Living is to encourage as many people to participate, share stories and inspire others to extend kindness not just once, but every day of the year.

For more information on Pay It Forward Day, or to share ideas and stories, please contact Cory Goodwin at 250-787-9262 ext.226 or cory.goodwin@Fort St. Johnacl.com .
