Random Acts
Every day, people are making a difference in our communities: getting groceries for a sick neighbor; giving a bonus or day off to workers at a small business; visiting an elderly person who lives alone. As a widening economic crisis cuts deeper into our minds and pocketbooks, the opportunities for goodwill are seemingly boundless. We would like to share the many ways that people, randomly, selflessly, help others. E-mail your tale to and make sure to include your name and phone number. Read recent Random Acts below:
