Kindness campaign benefits United Way
Want to feel better? One of the healthiest things you can do is be kind to others. LiveWell has launched its “Kindness Counts” campaign. The goal is to see how many acts of kindness residents can do in 30 days by donating coins in a kindness can. Kindness cans can be made from recycled materials and can be decorated with art found on the LiveWell Web site. The cans are to be placed in public places. Cans must be delivered to American National Bank on or before Oct. 15 for a final kindness tally. Proceeds will be donated to United Way.
For more information, go to LiveWell at http://www.livewell.org or call 683-6612.
