Random Acts of Kindness

As part of our 60th anniversary celebrations, our staff and those supported by Community Living are embarking on a campaign to do 60 random acts of kindness around the community! We'll list those great events here so you can see how we're doing!

1. Movie Night: Community Living is giving away free tickets to the movie "Wonder." More details.

2. Gayle Cayen donated cookies at the Pembroke Craft and Vendor Show on April 21st.

3. For National Volunteer Week this year, we provided our volunteers with thank you cards and letters and recognized them on the electronic sign outside our office. We also gave gift baskets to the volunteer members of the Board of Directors.

4. Free Washer Fluid Refills: For the people who drive others in our community to their medical and other appointments, we filled up washer fluid! Photo here.

5. Free Lunch: Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch? We dropped off free lunches at The Grind, Dad's Taxi, Danny's Taxi and Pembroke Hani-Bus as part of our Box of Possibilities annual fundraiser. Photo here.

6. Community Living sponsored the City of Pembroke's bridge flower box program.

7. At the showing of the "Wonder" movie, we gave away a gift basket containing the Wonder DVD. We also gave away snacks and treats at the movie event.
