United Way Kindness Week is Underway

SUNBURY – The 2024 Kindness Week is underway.

The Susquehanna Valley United Way each year lists a wide range of activities, awards, and ideas for conversations during Kindness week.  This year they celebrate kindness by saying, “Kindness is doing what you can, where you are, with what you have.”  They encourage all of us to volunteer, plant a garden, or host an event.


They have a mediation guide, Yoga for Kids, and encouragement to do a simple act of kindness. Each day they have a theme, today it’s ‘Kindness is the New Cool.’ Tomorrow it’s ‘Be Kind to All Kinds, then Random acts of Kindness, Be Kind to Your Mind, and Celebrate Kindness.


Each day Kindness heroes are announced, they win gift cards, Be Kind merchandise, and Friday the grand prize winner will be announced.

The Susquehanna Valley United Way covers Snyder, Union, Northumberland, Montour, and Columbia County. They have a lot more information, resources, ideas, and guides on their social media and at svuw.org and post hashtag #BeKind2024.
