Are you ready to spread kindness this winter?! Buy Cocoa & Kindness Boxes.
Your box purchase will empower kids to be kind and have access to Inside Out Club programs, spread kindness to others via the fun “kindness projects” inside each box, give sips of hot cocoa, smiles, and feelings of love and hope to those that receive the box, and can be marked as donate to become a “random act of kindness”.
Last year our neighbors chose to donate 172 of the 500 goody boxes. This year, with your help we can give 200+ boxes to first responders, teachers, veterans and people in need, all in time to bring smiles on Valentine’s Day.
