Do Something KIND for Someone – Day of Kindness June 21st

Each year on June 21st, United Ways across the country participate in a nationwide day of service called Day of Action.

With more daylight hours than any other day, June 21st is the perfect opportunity to let your actions speak louder than words.

This year, United Way of Grayson County has deemed June 21st our Day of Kindness. We are encouraging everyone to do a random act of kindness for someone else. Imagine the ripple effect this could cause if we all just do one nice thing for a stranger.

 

Help us spread kindness around Grayson County on June 21st. Stay tuned into our social media pages as we share ideas up leading up to Day of Kindness. #KindnessinGraysonCounty #LiveUnited #UWGC
