FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Friendship Society is looking to bring some positivity to organizations in the community.
Through the non-profit’s Random Act of Kindness (RAK) campaign, the team delivers much needed items to community organization in need. The drop-offs will happen every Monday for six weeks.
Vanessa Lalonde, Services Manager for the Society, says that they decided to start up the project to spread positivity, connect with community partners and engage the community as a whole.
“The goal of this initiative was multilayered, and our primary goal was to be able to do something good for our community and engage our stakeholders in a meaningful way. [This is] just to let them know that we are here, we’re in the community, and we want to spread some really good energy during a really difficult time”.
The initiative is also a way to bring the Society together.
“Moving into the new year, one of the things that we wanted was to start this initiative to allow our team to work together in something that could feel really good for us, and also help us to feel connected to the community.”
On January 25th, the Society delivered its first RAK, to Baby’s Best Chance at Community Bridge.
The Society has a few more organizations lined up for the upcoming weeks.
