A couple times a year, I write about being kind to others. A simple smile, holding a door open for someone, or calling someone just to say hello, uplifts the human spirit and makes their day. These are small acts of kindness that we all can do every day.
WCHI has been so blessed with fantastic volunteers, great monetary and food donors, and a very compassionate community who work together to alleviate hunger in Whitehall and Coplay. My quote is always “Whitehall-Coplay Hunger Initiative is making a difference in people’s lives.” Our community is helping our community and everyone involved with our programs have been touched in one way or another. Volunteers give their time and talents; donors give their treasures; and our guests gives us smiles, tears, and thankfulness that people truly care about them. Everyone needs help in their lives at one time or another. Thank you all for your part in helping residents in our community.
I gave you my quote and wanted to see what other quotes may be available to share. I found the following on the internet a couple years ago from Reader’s Digest “50 Powerful Kindness Quotes That Will Stay With You” and wanted to share some of them with you. I just googled the article again and it is now up to 60 quotes. I am sure you have some of your own favorites.
