On March 12, Sudbury.com visited a few local schools to talk to students about the importance of kindness.
Little did we know, just a few hours after we surprised the kids with family passes that they could enjoy over the March Break, the announcement came in from the Ontario government that all schools would be closed for at least three weeks to combat the spread of COVID-19.
Of course, the closures were a neccessary step to help minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our city.
In just a matter of weeks, residents were advised to stay home and practice social distancing. Attractions and other non-essential businesses in Greater Sudbury closed their doors in order to keep the public and their staff safe.
But amongst all this uncertainty, we are still seeing kindness at work in our community.
Sudbury.com knows that kindness is contagious and by sharing stories of acts of kindness it can inspire others to perform their own.
So we've decided to share some words of advice from Sudbury's youth.
Let it remind us about the importance of being kind to one another, especially during times like this.
Thank you to the KUPP Centre, Urban Air, Marix VR, Northern Exotics and Dynamic Earth for providing the families with passes that they can enjoy after the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us.
If you have received an act of kindness from a stranger or if you know a quiet hero that contunues to bring happiness to others - tell us about them!
Share your story and photos by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Together we can create some good news in our community.
