Celebrating Random Acts of Kindness: 50 Acts of Service at Riverdale Y

February 17 was Random Acts of Kindness Day. In the spirit of giving back to our community, we set out to accomplish 50 Acts of Service, and I am overjoyed to report that we’ve been making significant strides toward that goal.

From organizing food pantries to throwing memorable birthday parties, every act has been a testament to the generosity and compassion of our volunteers and staff. Here’s a glimpse into the heartwarming experiences we’ve had so far:

  1. Food Distribution at Two Mobile Food Pantries: We continued our food justice initiative by ensuring that our community members have access to essential food items through our pantry program.
  2. Threw a Large Birthday Party: Birthdays are special occasions, and we believe that everyone deserves to feel celebrated. We threw a fantastic birthday bash, complete with decorations, cake, and plenty of smiles.
  3. Shredded, Cleaned, and Organized: Our center received a much-needed makeover as volunteers came together to declutter, clean, and organize our space, making it even more welcoming for everyone who walks through our doors.
  4. Provided Care for Members: Our members are at the heart of everything we do, and we’ve been dedicated to providing them with the support and care they need, whether it’s through enrichment programs at Older Adult Center, assistance with Membership or hands-on-support at the Sunday Mark.
  5. Welcomed New Volunteers: New volunteers bring fresh energy and ideas to our community, and we’ve been thrilled to welcome several new faces into our dedicated team of volunteers.

As we continue on our journey to complete 50 acts of service, I invite you all to join us in spreading kindness and making a positive impact in the lives of those around us. Whether it’s lending a helping hand, offering a kind word, or simply being there for someone in need, every act of kindness counts.
