Acts of Kindness program

To kick off the Year of Goodness, (March 2017–March 2018), Mayor Jeremy Stutsman is encouraging each school in Goshen to create its own acts of kindness. He is not placing any rules on how these acts will develop; instead, he asks that schools encourage the participation of students who have not occupied leadership roles before and those who may not have the chance as youth to decide how to spend money on celebrating someone else.

Through generous donations from several local individuals and families, the Mayor was able to raise $18,000 to be shared among 12 schools. No public funds are being used for this program. Mayor Stutsman will deliver each school a check for $1,750, so students can use the funds to create and carry out acts of kindness. One of the benefactors Mayor Stutsman has already spoken with believes strongly enough in the Year of Goodness that he has committed to working with his friends to help fund the program for the next several years. Mayor Stutsman asks those interested in the program to consider making a donation for future years to make this an annual tradition.

If you wish to continue this program help by making a tax-deductible donation, please mail your check to the City of Goshen and add a note about Year of Goodness in the memo of the check. Mail your donation to:
