Riding a wave of holiday spirit across campus, Durham College (DC) reached its goal of 50 Acts of Kindness completed and shared by the end of its 50th anniversary year. Launched in April as part of DC’s 50th anniversary celebrations, the 50 Acts of Kindness project was designed to capture a snapshot of how members of our campus community give back.
Whether they were volunteering, donating to a food or clothing drive, helping a neighbour or surprising someone in need of a smile, DC students, employees, alumni and retirees proved that they’re both go-getters and go-givers!
Each act of kindness was submitted to the DC50 website along with a brief description of the act of kindness, participants involved and a photo. As each act of kindness was received it was then posted to the 50 Acts of Kindness webpage building a virtual college of goodwill and community.
DC is grateful to everyone who contributed generosity and good deeds to help reach 50 Acts of Kindness. Let’s keep the kindness flowing on campus and throughout the community as we enter 2018!
