Random Acts of Kindness

Members of the Friends of Rachel Club (FOR Club) visit with staff members of Colorado River Medical Center and give them cookies. The club works to encourage kindness throughout the community through activities such as visiting local businesses and thanking them for their efforts. The club started in November 2014 at Needles Middle School after a Rachel’s Challenge presentation was given. The focus of the presentation was about Rachel Joy Scott, a Columbine shooting victim, who believed in a chain reaction of kindness and promoted kindness.
