Thank You From The Kindness Project!

To all of our community members who so generously and kindly donated hygiene products to the Kindness Project – We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! With your help, we donated 100 boxes of products to the West Hartford Food Pantry, the Fern Street Universalist Church and the Village for Families and Children.

The diapers and deodorant, toilet paper and toothpaste, hair products, soap, laundry detergent and so much more make life a little bit easier for those who cannot easily access those products.

You stepped up and showed bold acts of kindness! Looking forward to the Kindness Project 2023!  Carol Waxman and Bailey Berardino, co-chairs.
