United Acts of Kindness Day is kicking off in Plano with an event hosted by First United Bank Plano filled with proclamations from area organizations to complete acts of kindness throughout the year starting on Feb. 16.
Participating entities will have representatives on site, including proclamations from the City of Plano and City of Carrollton and pledges for 150,000 acts of kindness from Plano ISD and 48,000 from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
Every February, United Acts of Kindness Day, hosted by First United Bank, brings together organizations and groups in the community to participate in intentional acts of kindness. This year, the bank’s goal is to complete more than 350,000 acts of kindness on Feb. 16. Suggestions for acts include walking a neighbor’s dog, giving someone an inspiring book, forgiving someone who has wronged you in the past, washing someone’s car, buying someone a cup of coffee, picking up trash that you see, preparing a meal for your family, plating a tree or a plant, giving a stranger a compliment and donating to a charity. The community can sign up to include their acts of kindness online.
At the kindness event, Mayor John Muns, Councilmember Julie Holmer, representatives from the City of Carrollton, representatives from Plano ISD and representatives from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano and leadership from First United Bank will speak on their pledges.
The event takes place at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 13 at First United Bank Plano located at 3930 Dallas Parkway.
