Kindness Day Stories

Spreading kindness can have a positive impact on a person’s life and inspire others, especially our youth, to be kind to each other. In 2021, we asked students in our community to share their stories of kindness. We collected their stories and published the first Kindness Day Bolingbrook book and eBook. Find a copy now.
