BURRILLVILLE – Broncos have just 24 hours to complete 50 acts of kindness, and while they were off to an impressive start on Thursday, Sept. 26, they may need the public’s help to arrive at the finish line.
At stake is $500 to support Burrillville High School’s rewards program – handed out to students who meet or exceed behavioral standards.
The list of kind deeds – which includes tasks such as “write a letter of appreciation to a local business,” and “offer to help an elderly friend or neighbor,” – was provided by Do Kind, a Massachusetts-based non-profit that has partnered with the school.
The deeds list went live on the organization’s website at 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, and has been updated throughout the day, with tasks crossed off as they’re completed. The community is invited to take part in the program by helping to complete the deeds.
Participants are asked to take a picture of the act with a sign that says “Burrillville High School,” “Do Kind,” and the date.
For the challenge to be deemed complete and the funding disbursed, all 50 pictures must be emailed to CrencaA@bsd-ri.net by 8 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 27.
As of 6 p.m. Thursday night, the students still had more than 20 tasks remaining.
