Lee’s Summit Celebrating Kindness in the Community

Lee’s Summit Celebrating Kindness in the Community

The City of Lee’s Summit’s Human Relations Commission is celebrating kindness in the community during its weeklong “Take Time to Be Kind” campaign, which runs from Feb. 14 through Feb. 20. Community members are encouraged to perform random and purposeful acts of kindness to promote positivity.

These acts of kindness can be as simple as holding a door open for someone, showing appreciation for a co-worker, doing a chore around the house or volunteering at a local organization. Community members are asked to share acts of kindness they witness on social media using #LSKindness.

The smallest gesture can have a major effect on someone’s day. Help spread happiness, promote positivity and make a lasting impact on the Lee’s Summit community.

For more information about the “Take Time to Be Kind” campaign, visit LSkindness.net.
