Local kids and adults will make care packages for homeless veterans and Easton residents who epitomize kindness will receive Boomerang awards at World Kindness Day in Easton.
The event, sponsored by the Easton Connects with Kindness Committee, will take place Saturday, Nov. 23, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Easton Public Library.
Gloves, winter socks, balaclava (full face warmers), toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving cream, safety razors, deodorant, medicated foot powder, and other essential items are desperately needed.
Collection boxes are available at Samuel Staples Elementary School, Helen Keller Middle School, the Easton Community Center and the Easton Public Library. Or bring donations to the event. Everyone is invited.
Boomerang awards will be presented to Easton Police Chief Tim Shaw, Eunice Hanson, Dr. John Machledt and Jon Stinson.
