Kootenay Society for Community Living staff and clients went about spreading good will around Castlegar last week.

Society pays it forward

Kootenay Society for Community Living organized several pay it forward events last week.

Kootenay Society for Community Living celebrated community living month by organizing pay it forward events spanning several days last week. All across the province, individuals with disabilities are being celebrated for the unique gifts, strengths, talents, and contributions they are bringing to the communities that they call home.

Participants, families, board, and staff of KSCL were out in the community doing random acts of kindness in the pay it forward spirit. They handed out small gifts to random people at work sites, businesses, parking lots, Selkirk College and City Hall. They also tried to visit all of their client’s employers to show their appreciation.

Participants handed out flowers, doughnuts and scratch & win tickets to which they attached a “Pay it forward” card that explained what they were doing and asked that the recipient too, pay it forward! Shoppers at Kootenay Market and Safeway were greeted with cake and reusable shopping bags.

They also purchased coffee from Tim Hortons, who matched their purchase, and then handed out free coffees to random customers in the drive thru.
