NOVEMBER 14-18, 2022

Minnesota United Acts of Kindness Week is a week dedicated to promoting kindness, generosity, and love through acts of kindness toward friends and strangers alike.

A simple act of kindness can change someone’s day and can spark a chain reaction. It does not need to be a grand gesture; it can be walking your neighbor’s dog, buying a coffee for a co-worker, helping an elder with their groceries, or holding the door open for a stranger.
