The Juneau Police Department Year of Kindness (JPDYOK) Steering Committee will be hosting “Cocoa and Kindness” at the Dimond Park Field House at 1-4 p.m. today. All are invited to run and walk the track, visit with the Year of Kindness organizers and enjoy some cocoa on the first snowy weekend of the year.
The Year of Kindness Steering Committee will also introduce its “banner project” at the gathering. One or more banners will circulate around Juneau to collect signatures from anyone who has participated, wants to recommit or otherwise support Juneau’s Year of Kindness. Look for the banners at the Juneau Public Market on Nov. 24-26 at Centennial Hall Convention Center and at the Year of Kindness year-end celebration.
Nominations for Juneau’s Kindest People are still being accepted by the steering committee until Dec. 20. To nominate a community member who exemplifies kindness, email 17YOK@juneaupolice.com with a 75-word explanation and contact information or contact a steering committee member. The winner will be recognized at the Year of Kindness year-end celebration, which will be held Dec. 31 at Thunder Mountain High School at 1-5 p.m.
