With everything going on in 2020, this is something that's making a difference for those in the Sedalia community.

It's that time of the year, that we start feeling the need to do good for others. Of course, this is something we should be doing year round, but I guess feelings of nostalgia, memories of days past and the holidays help us to take the plunge as we want to reach out to help others.

That's why the Sedalia Lions Club launched the "Random Acts of Kindness Project".

The Sedalia Lions Club launched their fifth annual event at last month's club's noon meeting.

For eighty years the Sedalia Lions Club has donated funds to support many organizations and groups throughout our community. Donations are made at the recommendation of the membership and approved by the board.

The "Random Acts of Kindness Project" empowers individual members to make a difference in our community. All Sedalia Lions Club members in good standing will be given $100.00 to use to perform "Random Acts of Kindness" in our community.

According to the Sedalia Lions Club Past President, Lion John Meehan, who started this project in 2016:

"The goal of the ‘Random Acts of Kindness Project' is to give each member a personal say in how some of the money they have helped raise is donated in our community. This program has the potential to create fifty-eight ambassadors from our club to do something nice during this season of giving and sharing. It is our way of thanking the community for supporting our club and the many other projects we do throughout the year."
