Kindness Boxes: Waltonwood Cary Parkway Residents and Associates Spread Cheer Throughout Community
CARY, N.C., – Being kind is not only good for you but everyone else. For Random Acts of Kindness Day, Waltonwood Cary Parkway, a family-owned senior living community, has found a way to spread kindness and joy throughout the community. All around the campus, boxes have been dispersed, and residents and associates are leaving thoughtful notes and wishes. These notes will be given to other residents and associates in the community, and they will hopefully lift the spirits of all who receive one. Being kind also has life-changing benefits. Research shows kindness boosts your immune system, reduces anxiety and gives you a sense of control.
“We are always looking for ways for our residents to interact with one another and be active within their community”, said LaQuita Dunn, life enrichment manager. “In recent times, it has been easy to feel isolated, and we want our residents to know that they live in a community where they are supported and cared for. We often forget how simple of a gesture it takes to brighten someone’s day, and we figured our kindness boxes would be the perfect way to do that.”
Each year on February 17, National Random Acts of Kindness Day grows in popularity. It is celebrated by individuals, groups and organizations nationwide to encourage acts of kindness. The movement of Random Acts of Kindness inspires people every day. As a favorite celebration for many, people everywhere are enjoying doing these acts of kindness. Not only do the acts of kindness bring joy to the receiver, but they spread positive reactions to the giver, too. The senior living community plans to keep the boxes out around the community to spread joy throughout the entire month.
“Since the pandemic hit, it hasn’t been easy for many of our residents”, said Dunn. “We are dedicated to keeping our residents safe and healthy, but we are also committed to making their daily lives as fulfilling as possible. We pride ourselves on the sense of community that is present at Waltonwood Cary Parkway, and even though many residents haven’t been unable to see their families, we wanted our residents to be able to find that comfort in one another. We are very excited to see everyone participate in our initiative and spread kindness around the community.”
