Acts of #KennewickKindness

(and counting)


Great or small, an act of kindness can inspire others. We invite our community, students, staff members, and partners to join us by sharing stories of acts of kindness. We look forward to posting them to our website and social media.

Stories of Kindness

Paraeducator Sees To Every Student’s Needs

Paraeducator Julie Klinginsmith is known for going above and beyond to help students get what they need, even if that means scheduling a student’s eye doctor appointment.

Students Give Comfort To Those In Need

“Our Natural Helpers at Desert Hills Middle School do such a great job thinking of ways to help everyone in our community.”

School Comes Together To Help Others

“Our Sunset View Elementary community really went above and beyond in supporting those in need this holiday season.”

A Gift Of Handmade Warmth

“I received a call from the front desk at the Kennewick School District Administration Center asking if we could use some knitted hats and mittens for students in need.”

Community Partner Brings In Coats For Students

“When the weather gets colder, we have students who show up without hats, gloves and jackets.”

Helping A Family In Need Celebrate The Holidays

“The family of one of my preschool students lost everything they had when their home burned down several weeks ago. We quickly worked to get them whatever we could. With Christmas approaching, we wanted to do more.”


Our hope is to log more than one thousand acts of Kennewick Kindness during the first year of our campaign. We will not be surprised if our community surpasses this goal because when you think about it, kindness has no limits. 


On a cold winter day, a Kennewick School District bus driver noticed a young boy board his bus without gloves. The boy's hands were red and there were tears in his eyes. The bus driver gave the boy his own gloves and returned to the school later that day to drop off new pairs for any child that needed them.

The school district posted the story to social media and thousands of people reacted around the world with wonderful, positive messages of gratitude and inspiration.

If you live in Kennewick, you know it's a friendly community. We are surrounded by generous and warmhearted people who show their care and concern for others in a variety of ways. You also know that giving spirit is at the heart of our community.
